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:

UCD staff, students, researchers, tutors, etc., can go to this page for details of how to request these.


The following series can be freely viewed via OSi's GeoHive mapping viewer
