Digimap have released a new mapping tool through its Ordnance Survey Collection to all registered users. It’s known as Roam.
Roam currently offers ‘click and drag’ functions to locate your map, 12 map views at different scales, printing in PDF at both A3 and A4 sizes, search by place name, postcode or grid reference, seamless scrolling through the fixed scale maps and 5 customisable map views. You can access Roam from the icon above Classic in Digimap’s Ordnance Survey Collection home page.
Roam is available as a BETA service and will therefore be subject to various improvements over the next few months.
Roam will replace the current Classic facility in January 2010.
