INFOMAR – Mapping Ireland’s Seabed

nullJust as countries are spending increasing amounts of money and resources to map their territories using high-resolution technologies such as LIDAR, some, like Ireland, are devoting significant effort to map their undersea territory (and potential resources) as well. Beginning in 2006, the INFOMAR (INtegrated Mapping FOr the Sustainable Development of Ireland’s MArine Resource) project has been focused on mapping Ireland’s bays and undersea territory using LIDAR, vessel surveys, and seabed sampling.

The INFOMAR website has a web mapping application with some of the vector data related If you would like to see examples of processed LIDAR data layers of some of Ireland’s bays in Google Earth, the INFOMAR site has several KMZ files available for download here.
