We are very pleased to announce the addition of a new collection of datasets to Digimap’s Ordnance Survey Collection. EDINA has partnered with Improvement Service to bring you a range of 37 datasets from Scottish Local Authorities. These are available at no additional charge upon agreement to the institutional sub-licence.
Once your institution has agreed to the sub-licence, all users will need to agree to the end user licence to have access to the data via the OS Data Download facility. To agree to the licence, log in to Digimap, go to Licence Agreements (top right) and find the Improvement Service licence at the bottom of the list. Once you have agreed to this, the data will be visible.
To access it, go to the left hand panel in Data Download and look for the section labelled “Improvement Service – Scotland”. All 37 datasets are listed in this section.
Although the availability grid indicates Scotland-wide coverage for every dataset, some local authorities do not provide every datasets.
