Recent developments with the Digimap collections are bringing us closer to our users in different ways.
We have just launched the 2012–2013 User Satisfaction Survey, and responses have started to come in. The survey will remain active until January 2013, when we will collate, analyse and report all the responses. User opinions are important for service planning and development; previous feedback has led directly to changes in each of the collections.
As a separate exercise we are also keen to hear from users to help shape the future of Digimap Carto. Further details are given in a blogpost:
Our 2012–2013 programme of events is now underway. This consists of a series of webinars and training courses as well as attendance at conferences and exhibitions such as GISRUK and Ordnance Survey’s free open data masterclasses. Archived events materials, including webinar recordings, are also kept on the EDINA website. Similarly, presentations and publications are kept online for reference.
As well as regular blogposts and tweets, we also provide a periodic roundup in a dedicated Digimap Newsletter. Last week we sent the latest edition to all 50,000 registered users of Digimap. It summarises the main developments of the service over the past quarter, one highlight of which is the latest batch of user contributed case studies.
The next issue will be in January.
We hope the activities above provide sufficient opportunities to engage with the Digimap team. We look forward to hearing from you and will continue to provide updates on all developments.
