A new geospatial data sharing facility has been released today which enables Digmap users to find and share geospatial datasets.
ShareGeo forms part of the EDINA Digimap suite of services....
ShareGeo is free to use for all Digimap users.
Use ShareGeo to contribute your own (derived or user-generated) geospatial datasets, or to download datasets that are already there for your research, teaching or personal use....
Geospatial datasets in a number of formats (raster, vector and tabular) can be contributed for anywhere in the world. A minimal amount of metadata is required for each dataset....
Licensing restrictions may apply to some datasets, so for example if a dataset is derived from Ordnance Survey data, only Digimap users registered for the Digimap Ordnance Survey collection will be able to access it....
PS: ShareGeo is the successor to EDINA's GRADE (Geospatial Repository for Academic Deposit and Extraction). See our past posts on GRADE and EDINA's other geospatial projects.

The open access movement:
Putting peer-reviewed scientific and scholarly literature
on the internet. Making it available free of charge and
free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.
Removing the barriers to serious research.
