new digimap interface graphic

Following user feedback a new version of Digimap which combines both mapping and data download functions in a single interface is now available.

The new interface will be very familiar since it is almost identical to Roam. You will find the Data Download function as an additional tab in the panel on the left-hand side. The functions operate as previously, with a few very minor additional shortcuts.

Both the Roam and Data Download independent applications will be withdrawn completely at the end of July 2023.

All Digimap users please note the Collection formerly known as Geomni has now been rebranded as Verisk . All data, support materials and access remain unaffected, only the name has changed! Look out for Digimap Verisk

Two new collections are now available via the University's subscription to Digimap - Geomni and AgCensus!
