A number of key datatsets have been updated in Digimap this December in several of the collections.

Of particular note are the updates to the Marine collection. The HydroView Charts raster product from SeaZone is now available in two versions: ‘Full Marginalia’ and ‘No Marginalia’. Users can select the version after adding the product to the basket in Marine Download.

Choose Marginalia in the Basket

The ‘No Marginalia’ version has all extra information round the map (e.g. north arrows, scale bars, inset maps etc.) removed and replaced with transparent areas. This makes it ideal for use in GIS software allowing you to pan across adjacent charts without this information obscuring the map data.

Furthermore the Charted Raster .tif files are now supplied with .tab files for accurate positioning in MapInfo.
