Digimap for Colleges: User Guide

About Digimap for Colleges

Digimap for Colleges provides easy access to a range of up to date Ordnance Survey digital mapping for Great Britain. You can access detailed maps showing building outlines, street level maps, road atlas style maps and maps for outdoor activities.

It also offers a range of annotation tools including points, lines, text and images which gives you the power to use the maps how you want and to be creative.

Any map you create can be saved, printed or you can create an image file to drop into a report or presentation. In the image below we searched for The Manchester College Fielden Campus by using the post code.
