Digimap for Schools is an online mapping service for use by teachers and pupils in schools. Established in 2010 and building on the EDINA Digimap service for higher and further education, Digimap for Schools is a collaborative venture between EDINA, JISC Collections and Ordnance Survey.

Digimap for Schools provides easy access to a range of current Ordnance Survey maps including the most detailed mapping available for Great Britain, OS MasterMap, as well as digital versions of Ordnance Survey’s famous paper maps, the Landranger and Explorer series. Also included are street level maps showing street names and road-atlas style maps.

Digimap for Schools offers a seamless digital map of Great Britain at each scale available. Maps can be printed as PDF files at A3 or A4 size and in landscape or portrait orientation. Maps can be printed with an individual’s own map title and name included with the scale bar and school name and address. Search tools include postcode, place name or national grid reference and maps can be moved to centre on any chosen location within Great Britain. Map keys are available for each scale map to explain the symbols used within the map.
