What is Digimap?

Digimap is a collection of databases/services that provide maps and map data of Great Britain. Data is available either to download, to use with appropriate software such as geographical information systems (GIS) or computer-aided design (CAD), or as online maps. Leeds Beckett does not subscribe to all of the Digimap databases/services. Our subscription gives you access to:

  • Aerial Digimap
  • Environment Digimap
  • Geology Digimap 
  • Historic Digimap 
  • Lidar Digimap
  • Marine Digimap
  • Ordnance survey collection

Please note that Leeds Beckett students who are studying overseas are not permitted to use Digimap. You must be in the UK to access Digimap.
