New content added to online map tools – Digimap and Geofacets

Library Services have extended our Digimap subscription to include the Aerial collection. Aerial Digimap offers detailed aerial photography from Getmapping Plc, with both a mapping and a data download facility available. Aerial Roam can be used to view, annotate and print the aerial photographs as well as an overlay function to allow comparison with current Ordnance Survey mapping. Aerial Download can be used to download the data for use in GIS or CAD (e.g. ArcGIS). Data is delivered in jpeg format each with a corresponding world file (.jgw).

New content has also been added to the Geofacets database. In addition to over 650,000 geological maps and data in the journal literature already available, the new content includes figures and tables such as seismic profiles, stratigraphic columns, photographs, well logs and data. As with the maps and data, this new content can also be downloaded and integrated with tools such as ArcGIS, GoogleEarth, Excel and Petrel.
