Find or identify heritage sites and explore heritage data sets anywhere in Ireland.
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.
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.
HeritageMaps.ie is a continuously-updated, accessible and easy-to-use discovery tool that is invaluable for academic, recreational, local and scientific research.
