  • Dissertation funding - we support students with their geography-related research projects.

  • OS OpenData - your creative students can use this map data to help their digital projects.

Educational resources

  • Digimap for Colleges - a free online mapping service provided by JISC, delivered by EDINA and enabled by OS. Use the annotation tools to identify different types of land use and buildings, plot transport routes to find the safest way to travel, and find the best location to open a new business. It's free to use - your college just needs to be signed up.
  • Digimap for Universities - once your university subscribes, students and researchers can access our map data through the Digital Ordnance Survey Collection® - delivered by EDINA and JISC.


Career stuff
