Ordnance Survey talk about surveying.
Wednesday 20th November 2013, 8pm to about 9:30.
A talk about the "Original Survey and Modern Mapping Methods" will be given by Dominic Cronin.

The systematic mapping of Ireland started with the Ordnance Survey from 1829 onwards. To create a map for which all pieces fitted together it was first necessary to measure the earth. The Victorian way of doing this was to measure one length accurately for a baseline and then measure angles to the ends of this to mountaintops and further mountaintops. From this primary triangulation further work led to measuring fields, houses, roads and all other features. At the end of the process there was the creation of the 25 and 6 inch to the mile maps. In contrast modern mapping uses a variety of techniques some based on airphotography, GPS and Electronic Distance Measurement. . . . .
