Environment Digimap

The University’s subscription to Digimap has recently been extended to include Environment Digimap providing UK Land Cover Map data from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.  These digital raster datasets, derived from satellite data collected by the Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper, provide classification of land cover types at a 25m resolution for the years of 1990, 2000 and 2007. Classifications include sea and inland waters, bare, suburban and urban areas, arable farmland, pastures and meadows, rough grass, grass heaths and moors, bracken, dwarf shrub heaths and moorland, scrub, deciduous and evergreen woodland and upland and lowland bogs.

You can access Environment Digimap from the databases link on the Library Home Page.This resource is available to all Staff and Students on and off campus using your GUID, however please note that if you are using Environment Digimap for the first time, you will be automatically directed to a registration form.
