Friday 10th January sees Digimap reach the grand old age of 20! There are still a few EDINA staff who remember the exciting day we launched the national service after 3 years of pilots and projects. Our initial data licence was for 4 years and we have gone from strength to strength since then, expanding both the range of data offered and the tools that interact with it. We anticipated 40 subscriptions within the first year; we had 70 within the first month!
Digimap was born in the early days of web based mapping and we are delighted that we are able to continue to develop and grow the service to keep up with changing times, and that it continues to help and support an enormous range of research and teaching across all discplines and at all levels. Roll on the next 20 years!
Indulge us…..here is an image of the second version of Digimap Classic – the precursor to Roam.
