Planned Downtime: Digimap

Digimap have been developing a new registration system, the release of which requires the following period of downtime:

New registrations for Digimap (using the current system) will be closed from 4pm Monday 26th January.

Digimap will then be unavailable to new registrations and existing users all day on Tuesday 27th January, until 9am on Wednesday 28th January.

Digimap shared the following:

"We apologise for the inconvenience caused but due to the significant changes required to release the new system we must close access to Digimap during this time.

We urge you to create any maps or download data that you may need during the period of service unavailability in advance.

We have also updated the Digimap service alert text on the Digimap homepage - http://digimap.edina.ac.uk

The new registration system will allow users to register and instantly access Digimap Collections via email verification, speeding up access for new users significantly. We hope that this much improved interface for registering will help make up for new users being prevented from registering during the release period."
