Ever wanted to add an interactive map to your institutional web site of your campus allowing students the ability to zoom in and out and pan around the map? Or maybe you'd like to provide simple measurement tools to measure the distance from one campus building to the next? Well now you can at very little cost. This session will show you how to integrate the open source mapping software 'OpenLayers' into your web site and how to pull into that EDINA's new Digimap OpenStream - a free web mapping service for members of higher educational institutions based upon Ordnance Survey's OpenData products.
