We have trial access to an additional product from EDINA Digimap – Geomni, available until 1st April 2021. Trial login details available on request.
Geomni offers remote sensing and machine learning sourced geographic and spatially referenced data relevant to many sectors and disciplines. Create, view and annotate Geomni data online or download for further manipulation within GIS or CAD packages.
Geomni includes the following datasets:
UKMap 1:1,000-scale topographic mapping, UKMap accurately locates topographic detail and includes rich attribution detailing land and building use and land-cover. In addition, it comprises addresses, retail names, detailed shopping centre data, building heights, a wide range of points of interest, aerial photography, together with Digital Terrain and Surface Models.
UKLand A maintained, national land information database providing a detailed consistent breakdown of the use of land across the UK. With 30 different land use classes from agriculture and woodland to business parks, transport and urban centres. Available as both a land-use and telecoms clutter database, UKLand is used by planners, consultancies, telecoms and other utilities and local and regional government organizations, to help plan and deliver major projects.
UKBuildings A unique database created and maintained by Geomni to help you understand the age, structure, characteristics and use of commercial, public and residential buildings across the UK. UKBuildings is used in the insurance, finance, land and property sectors and by government, telecoms and utility organisations. The UKBuildings database contains the location and footprint of all buildings across the UK with a full classification within urban areas (towns above 10,000 population).

We have been very busy over the summer adding to our growing collection of e-resources to support your studies and research. Discover individual titles in Library Search and browse some of the new collections now available to you below.
We have also invested in continued access to our Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA) collections from multiple publishers, so you can browse and access hundreds of ebook titles and we can see which are the most popular titles for our students and researchers.
There is no need to login as you will be recognized automatically by IP address during the trial. However, you can register for a personal account by clicking on “MySoS” in order to save searches and results lists.
Click the “Training & Support” button in the top menu to find case studies, author lists and further help. There is a quick start guide and video tutorials to support you.

So when does an Animal Science student need to use EDINA Digimap and GIS software? The answer is not all do, but you never know where your dissertation project may take you, and what software may help your research or your presentation or visualisation of results.
Grace’s dissertation took her to Sunderland to road test the country’s first gas sniffer dog. Collaborating with an Earth Science student to help her use the mapping products and with training from the geosciences team in using GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) accurate to 2cm, she plotted the gas leaks and successful finds by her faithful four legged co-worker. The team demonstrated that a dog’s nose is as good conventional gas detection equipment, and could be very helpful with difficult to trace gas leaks.
With many thanks to Dr Catherine Douglas, School of Natural and Environmental Sciences, for providing this content.
See what is available to you on the Maps Guide and take up opportunities to collaborate or share good practice with other disciplines. You never know where it might lead!
This summer we have been very busy buying new journals, databases, eBook collections and print books in hot topics of interdisciplinary interest across Science, Agriculture and Engineering. Dive in and discover:
