Finding & using OSi mapping: two websites explored
This presentation examines two websites with OSi mapping. The first is UCD Library’s Digital Collection Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) 19th Century Historical Maps, which has 10-foot and 5-foot city, town, and village maps. This includes a demo to show how to find and take a print from a map.
The second website is OSI’s own National Townland and Historical Map Viewer, which has a range of historical maps and also recent aerial imagery. This demo will show how to view the townland boundary of a location and to find the date of the 25 inch and 6 inch series maps.
