Move to Virtual Environment Ensures EDINA Digimap Meets Demand for its Map Delivery Service

By GeoConnexion - 29th October 2020 - 13:44

Digimap, the online map and data delivery service provided by EDINA, based at the University of Edinburgh, has upgraded its geospatial web services engine to Cadcorp GeognoSIS 9. It is now operating in a virtualised environment that improves both scalability and redundancy. Digimap has been powered by Cadcorp GeognoSIS since 2008. To meet the demand of the ever-increasing number of map requests and benefit from a significant number of new features, EDINA chose to upgrade to the latest version of GeognoSIS. Digimap specialises in the delivery of a number of geographical data collections over the internet. It serves nearly 150 UK higher and further education institutions with networked access to a library of mapping data. EDINA also runs Digimap for Schools, an online mapping service for pupils aged 5 – 16 years old. This is currently used by almost 3,500 British secondary and primary schools.
