EDINA are thrilled to announce an exciting new addition to Global Digimap – Collins Bartholomew’s raster World Panorama https://www.collinsbartholomew.com/map-data-products/panorama/world-panorama/

This beautiful new addition to Global Digimap is an excellent addition providing a wonderful cartographic product ideal for small scale extents.

World Panorama Data - Collins Bartholomew

EDINA feel this addition, available via it’s ‘Alternate Base Map’ function is a perfect enhancement to the collection. With it’s origins in The Times Atlas, World Panorama exemplifies what is best about a mapping product where cartographic presentation is at the fore. With a geopolitical committee sitting behind the product, providing input on boundaries and territory disputes it is the epitome of an authoritative dataset. This provides excellent comparison to OpenStreetMap, a massive crowd-sourced dataset of volunteered geographic information.

Available as a raster product and still to be added to Data Download, EDINA are keen to hear if this mapping product is attractive to you as a core offering in Global Digimap. If you have any comments about this new addition, please do let us know using the details below.
