Maps, Guides and Atlases

Ordnance Survey Ireland's PLACE Mapping Series is a further emphatic step down the road of market-driven customer responsiveness. Our customers demanded high quality, accurate and convenient geographic information to enable them to conduct their everyday business. The OSI responded by producing the PLACE Mapping Series, aimed at professionals in the Planning, Legal, Agricultural, Construction, Engineering and related industries. This series has many advantages over traditional sheet maps, including:

* Maps of plans can be site centred
* Single plot replace multiple plans
* Paper sizes from A4 to A0 can be specified
* Maps can be plotted to your preferred scale
* Urban maps can be ordered by simply supplying property address
* Urban and rural series can be combined into a single plot
* National grid coordinates are supplied with each plan
* Extremely cost effective - payment is based only on information supplied
