1:10,000 tiles

The 1:10,000 scale mapping is derived directly from the OSNI Largescale database. This mapping provides clear, detailed and textual information on roads, buildings, fields, administrative boundaries, water features and vegetation overlaid by contours at 10m intervals.

The 1:10,000 scale raster is available as regular tiles or a bespoke site-centred area.


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 is geo-referenced to the Irish Grid so it can be viewed in the right geographical position using 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.
