Wetland Maps of Ireland Update


Wetland Map of Ireland

In conjunction with Wetland Survey Ireland we have been developing a project to create a map which shows all Irish wetlands which have been surveyed in the country and show key habitat and conservation information on these areas. 

A revised version of the Google Fusion "Wetland Map of Ireland" has just been up loaded, with Counties Monaghan and Louth being the best covered at a national scale. Data presented includes the results from the 2012 wetland surveys in these counties. Information is currently shown on 1,183 Irish wetlands.

Plans are under way to upload data for Sligo, Meath, Cavan, Wicklow and Clare in the near future. 

We hope the information will be of use to people wanting to find out more about wetlands in their county or for professionls who want to research sites at a particular locatlity. Making the map accessible via Google makes it easy to access and with a suitable device (smart phone, iPAD etc.) totally mobile no matter where u are in the country!
