Digimap for schools: scalable web mapping without the jargon
An innovative online mapping service for teachers and pupils in primary and secondary education, that even time-served GIS professionals can learn from. GeoConnexion UK, Jan/Feb 2013
The article describes a subscription service that removes the need for individual schools to acquire and store mapping data on their own computers. EDINA, the national academic data centre based at the University of Edinburgh, takes care of that and provides map updates as required. However, Digimap for Schools is much more than a central and up-to-date mapping repository. It is also a mapping service and a mapping application as the article describes.
