New Digimap Resource available until the 31st of July. (Ended)

Digimap have launched a new collection of Lidar data in Digimap, the first time the data for England, Scotland and Wales has all been brought together into one easy to use service.

To start using the service simply login to Digimap and click on the Lidar Collection on the Digimap homepage (shown above) and accept the licence agreement.
The service allows you to download the Lidar data as Digital Terrain Models, Digital Surface Models and the raw LAS point file data. We will also be adding some Orthophotography that was captured with the English data.

For more details on which datasets and areas are available at launch and what else we intend on adding to the service please read the blog: New Lidar Collection.

Syndetics ICE in Primo

Syndetics ICE has been enabled in Primo. This is a catalogue enrichment product, and it means that:

•    Additional data, including Table of Contents and Abstracts, is now displayed in the Details tab for our books.

•    This additional data is indexed alongside the usual MARC title and subject data, meaning that users will obtain more relevant results for their searches.  A search should now uncover words and phrases previously buried in chapters and book summaries.

•    With enhanced discoverability of our resources, we should see an increase in usage and circulation data – hopefully demonstrating better value for money and more informed decision making.
