Logging back into Digimap services and new look Digimap home page

Please note that there is a new look page for Digimap services  – and you also have to accept the terms of Digimap services  when you log back in  – they say below:

“We are now at the start of a new academic year and Digimap has new licence agreements in place for the Ordnance Survey, Geology and Historic Map and Data Collections. You may have noticed already that you have been asked to agree to the licence again when you logged in.  This is because some of the terms are different and you are required to agree to these new terms prior to accessing the data within the service.

When you login you will notice the Licence Agreements button at the top right of the home page.

Licence Agreement Button

Clicking on this will allow to you to view the licences you have agreed to and to agree to those you have not yet agreed to, then you can carry on using as before.
