Never again will you lose your way down a boreen in Ballyconnell, or up a mountain in Mayo. The market leading Discovery series of maps ensure you always know your place in Ireland.

At a scale of 1:50,000, this is a digital version of the Discovery mapping series, originally designed for tourist and leisure activities. It has proved to be a popular and beneficial backdrop layer for many of our digital users and contains all the features and information that is found on our paper product. In 2009 OSi engaged in a customer consultation process with key user groups of the Discovery Series maps, this process has led to a redesign of the entire map series to better reflect the needs of our customers. A significant amount of forestry, trails, waymarked walks and summit information (including third party contributions) has been collated by OSi to enhance the value of the Discovery Series to the outdoor and GI community.

There are 250 tiles in the series (Republic of Ireland). Additional tiles produced by Land & Property Services (formerly Ordnance Survey NI) are available for Northern Ireland.

Each tile covers a ground area of 20km x 20km, and all are available in Irish Grid (IG) or ITM Irish Transverse Mercator (ITM) and in vector and raster formats and are ideal for integration with hand held GPS units in this rapidly expanding digital market.

A digital representation of the market leading Discovery series of maps is useful for tackling the tracks and trails of 21st century Ireland and an ideal tool for highlighting your location through a website, organising a sporting event or simply navigating your way home.

Available as a Paper or Digital product. Please contact digitals@osi.ie for further information.
