Overview

Ireland’s most comprehensive heritage resource, HeritageMaps.ie enables you locate a vast range of heritage-related sites and projects.

The HeritageMaps.ie viewer provides access to national heritage data sets in map form while incorporating additional contextual data from a wide range of online sources.

It also includes datasets that are unique to this project such as soil susceptibility to coastal erosion, museums datasets and a range of thematic county heritage surveys.

View datasets and meta data

Its impressive spread of applications lets you:

  • create customised maps with cross-disciplinary views;
  • assess area and distance;
  • identify points of interest;
  • study local flora and fauna.

This project is co-ordinated by the Heritage Council, working with the Local Authority Heritage Officer network. It builds on the work carried out by the National Biodiversity Data Centre.

Benefits

HeritageMaps.ie is a continuously-updated, accessible and easy-to-use discovery tool that is invaluable for academic, recreational, local and scientific research.
