Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi), the national mapping agency of Ireland, has undergone a digital transformation that includes great efficiency gains in mapmaking processes, and the creation of a one-stop shop called GeoHive to collect and serve the government’s spatial data across departments. These changes now form a backbone of capability to take mapping to a whole new level.


Key takeaways from this article: 

  • Open data adds transparency and enables interactions.
  • Location data underpins key government objectives.
  • Linking initiatives through location pins hope around plans.

This is the second in a three-part series on Ordnance Survey Ireland’s map modernization efforts.

Improved data sharing leads to cost savings and better decisions across government with a greater sense of place for citizens.

National mapping agencies, like many other industries, have seen impacts from the disruption of the internet. The many changes in information flow have caused a complete rethink about what they do and how they do it.

Key takeaways from this article:

  • Open data leads to increased citizen interaction and improved government collaboration.
  • Online mapping educates the public about how spatial is special, while allowing them to create custom maps.
  • Freely available data encourages new investments in Ireland.

First in a three-part series on Ordnance Survey Ireland’s map modernization efforts.

Isn’t data just data?

Once you start asking questions of your data, it doesn’t take long to realize when key details are missing. The location data that underpins mapmaking is of limited use if it only indicates where something is (its address, coordinates, or place-name). It gains intelligence if attributes are added to describe the what and why.

Key takeaways from this article: 

  • The value of spatial data exceeds the value of a paper map.
  • Intelligent data adds insight, overcoming uncertainty.
  • Digital workflows produce compounding benefits.
