Aerial Mapping from Ordnance Survey Ireland

Through the OSi’s e-commerce system, Richview Library sells orthographic maps at discounted educational rates to staff and students of UCD. Othophotographic maps are aerial photos that have been georectified, a process that removes the geographical distortions inherent in aerial photography.


There are two series available, and the output is in PDF format:


Ortho 2005 - Colour aerial photography flown between 2004 and 2006.


Ortho 2000 - Colour aerial photography flown in July 2000.


These series can be freely viewed via the OSi's online shop.
