Digimap, the online map and data delivery service, has a new trial service available. In addition to Ordnance Survey, Historic, Geology, Aerial, Environment, Marine and Global, we now have access to Society Digimap.
Society Digimap provides a wealth of census and socio-economic data for Great Britain. Although census data is available through the UK Data Service, the processing required to show census and other demographic datasets on a map can be a barrier to use for many interested in the value of the datasets. By providing these datasets as layers to visualise along with high quality Ordnance Survey data, users can access this rich information source to gain valuable insights for their areas of interest without the need to learn how to use a GIS.
Over 40 layers of data from a range of Census 2011 data, broadband availability and Output Area Classification (OAC) are available. Initially this can be mapped using a Roam mapper, but a download facility is also planned.
Is this service useful?
If you are using or planning to use this service in your teaching or research, please let us know! The trial is available until 31 July 2019. Please send any feedback about it to Judith Fox, Digimap Site Representative.
