Why get OS OpenData from Digimap?

  1. Digimap’s Data Download allows you to get OS OpenData in much smaller amounts than downloading it from Ordnance Survey’s website. You can take just the tiles that cover the area you are interested in, avoiding downloading large amounts of data you don’t need.
  2. Data Download lets you take Licensed and Open data products at the same time which can save a lot of time when collating data for a project.
  3. Data Download keeps the older versions of the datasets allowing you to see how the dataset changes over time. This is very useful when studying temporal changes though do note that not all changes on the maps are due to real word changes. Sometimes differences in survey techniques, accuracy or policy mean that new features appear or disappear from the map.
