Society Digimap: trial access

The University of Cambridge now has trial access to the newly launched Digimap collection: Society Digimap, via this link.

For registration for use of Digimap please see the UL Map Department’s page here:

Access is enabled until 31 July 2019.  Please send us your feedback via the online form here.  Thank you.

Society Digimap allows you  to explore a range of demographic data, providing a wealth of census and socio-economic information for Great Britain. The processing required to visualise Census and other demographic datasets can be a barrier to use for many people interested in the value of the datasets. By providing these datasets as layers to visualise along with high quality Ordnance Survey data, the rich information can offer valuable insights without the need to learn how to use a GIS.

Today, the mapping facility, Society Roam is available. A full data download application is under development, which will offer the ability to download both the census data and the corresponding boundaries together.
