EDINA Digimap available via the UK federation

Posted on Tuesday, 8 January 2008

EDINA Digimap, which celebrates its 8th birthday this week, is a collection of services delivering maps and map data of Great Britain to UK Higher and Further Education. The 100,000th Digimap OS service user was registered in December 2007.

However, please note that (apart from 'Historic Digimap') Digimap services will only grant access to users from an Identity Provider which has both subscribed to the service and offers 'user accountability' as defined in section 6 of the federation's Rules of Membership.

The Athens-to-Shibboleth gateway does not presently offer user accountability, and so users of the gateway cannot access services requiring it.
