Welcome to the Marine Irish Digital Atlas!

The atlas is a comprehensive resource for coastal and marine information and spatial data in Ireland. Here you will find an overview of topics related to the Irish coast, as well as an interactive atlas where you can choose layers from various organisations to view and query. For professionals interested in spatial data you can search our database of available layers, view metadata, and in some cases download data.

Use the compass on the left to begin your navigation of the site, or go directly to the atlas.

Follow this link to see the complete list of layers.
