A research and funding programme that supports Irish archaeology projects, promotes collaboration and partnerships, and features an online archaeology resource.
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.
The Heritage Council recommends that the principles of shared ownership and shared responsibility for our landscape should be reflected in planning legislation which is both inclusive and participatory.
The framework assesses current knowledge and research of this amazing UNESCO World Heritage Site and proposes a strategy for future research with a view to its sustainable management.
