HERITAGE MAPS WEBSITE LAUNCHED



For the past number of years the Heritage Council has been working with a variety of bodies and the Local Authority Network throughout the country, in developing a bespoke, one stop shop, for heritage map based data. The result iswww.heritagemaps.ie - a most wonderful database containing a wealth of heritage information.

"Interested in what's around you? Want to find out more about your local heritage after Heritage Week? Check outwww.heritagemaps.ie. This map viewer is the A-Z of Ireland's heritage : from archaeology to the marine zone. Explore pilgrim paths, burial grounds, bat landscapes, maritime museums, walled towns from your phone, tablet or desktop computer. HeritageMaps.ie allows you to look at a wide range of built and natural heritage datasets in map form, many of which have never been accessible to the public before.
HeritageMaps.ie acts as a "one-stop-shop" discovery tool, providing access to heritage data along with contextual data from a broad range of sources. These datasets were created for government departments, agencies and local authorities.
HeritageMaps.ie has many other uses for education, recreation and research.
HeritageMaps.ie is building up national coverage of heritage datasets from local authority sources as well as using existing national datasets, including live services.
The Heritage Council has worked over the past 18 months with local authorities and Compass Informatics to bring this to you. We need your help to develop Heritage Maps. Please visit www.heritagemaps.ie and leave feedback - via the link on the homepage - with your views and suggestions"
. For further information phone the Heritage Council on 056 7770777.
