Roam - new click and drag functions in Digimap

A new tool is now available to all registered users of Digimap.

Roam offers "click and drag" functions to locate your map, 12 map views, printing PDF in A3 and A4, searching by place name, postcode or grid reference, seamless scrolling through fixed scale maps and 5 customisable map views. You can access Roam from the icon above Classic in Digimap's Ordnance Survey collection home page.

Roam is a beta service so further improvements will be introduced over the next few months, including:

- additional print formats as alternatives to PDF

- inclusion of scalebar on printed maps

- provision of scale and extent indication on screen maps

- adding a "my maps" function for bookmarking maps
