This service, which is hosted at the EDINA national data centre, delivers Ordnance Survey maps and map data, available either via download facilities for use with appropriate application software such as GIS or CAD, or as maps generated by Digimap online. A simple mapping tool allows users to view and print maps of any location in Great Britain at a series of predefined scales; a more advanced mapping tool enables the user to specify map scale, area and content, as well as print maps at up to A0 in size.
