Selecting records by Local Authority area

by jimmcintosh » Wed Oct 01, 2014 3:17 pm

I would like to select records in the City of Edinburgh Local authority area. Is that possible (Is see there is an "Administrative" category but cannot find Edinburgh) or would I have to obtain a GIS boundary and upload it somehow? (How?)

Hi Jim,

Local authority boundaries are not one of the preloaded types, but if you can find a boundary then I'd be happy to add it for you.

I plan to substantially expand the areas that are available, as parish and other modern admin boundaries could be really useful for validating grid-refs against placenames.
