Digital mapping for Éire14th May 2007
While mainland Britain is well supplied with digital mapping, it seems that Éire is not as well endowed. Nevertheless, Ordnance Survey Ireland does offer a product that it calls Trailmaster for selected parts of the country with each DVD in the four strong series costing €99.00 on sale from its online store (the U.K.’s Ordnance Survey offers them for £75 each). While coverage is not exhaustive, the lion’s share of country is covered by the East, South, West and Shannon DVD’s. The mapping uses the 1:50000 scale that is also available in paper form as the Discovery series. Given the small size of my collection of Irish maps, the digital option does look to be a tempting one.
