Map Collections at UCD and on the Web: Aerial and Ortho Mapping
Aerial Mapping from Ordnance Survey Ireland
Through the OSi’s National Mapping Agreement, Richview Library provides orthographic maps to staff and students of UCD. Orthophotographic maps are aerial photos that have been georectified, a process that removes the geographical distortions inherent in aerial photography.
There are several series available, and the output is in PDF format:
