1:10,000 paper or raster map

The 1:10,000 scale mapping is derived directly from OSNI's large-scale database and provides clear, detailed and textual information on roads, buildings, fields, administrative boundaries, water features and vegetation overlaid by contours at 10 metre intervals.

1:10,000 availability

1:10,000 scale mapping is available as paper plots or as digital raster data.

Raster mapping is the simplest form of digital mapping. The raster data has been geo-referenced to the Irish Grid so it can be viewed in the right geographical position using geographic information (GI) software.

Bespoke paper plots can be centred on a site specific area in landscape orientation and are printed at A* paper size. Paper plots of 1:10,000 scale mapping show Irish Grid lines and coordinates directly on the map.
