The Marine Irish Digital Atlas is a
geographically referenced interactive map that allows users
to view and explore a wide range of marine and coastal data
layers. It is powered by MapServer web mapping software (find
out more on the MIDA's About the Atlas
page). Atlas layers are constantly being added and updated,
so check back regularly. The atlas has been officially launched
at the end of the summer 2006. We welcome your feedback!
