    • What is Roam? • Facility in Digimap’s Ordnance Survey Collection • Create, save and print A3/A4 PDF maps using Ordnance Survey maps • 13 fixed scale map views, each view uses a OS map product with a level of detail appropriate for the scale, e.g. – National view 1:1,600,000, MiniScale® – Plan view 1:1,250, OS MasterMap data • Find out more about Ordnance Survey map products: http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/products/index.html Digimap Training Workshops
    • 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.
    • Carto will be replaced • Digimap team working on replacement, to be available 2013 • Too difficult to maintain - changes to web browsers and Java • Your feedback appreciated on development: – http://digimap.blogs.edina.ac.uk/2012/10/12/digimap-carto-we- need-your-help/ Digimap Training Workshops
