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.
