  4. 4. Digimap’s Ordnance Survey Collection •Roam – fixed scale mapping. Print A3, A4 PDF. •Carto – user selects scale of map. However Carto will not display a product if it is not sensible to do so at the selected scale...e.g. very detailed mapping will not be displayed if the user selects a small scale, say 1:500000. Print A4 to A0 PDF.
