  The Atlas

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!
