Do your VITAL bit for hillwalking maps soon.
Ordnance Survey Ireland bring out a high proportion of the maps of interest to hillwalkers in Ireland. They are the only source of mapping for vast swathes of the island of Ireland. But since they brought out the 1:50000 maps in the 90's and the more recent 7 1:25000 maps various issues have become clear. In short there are omissions and incosistencies thay materially affect hill and coastal walkers. Think forest tracks, rides, outlines. Think hill walking-tracks. Think car parking both formal and informal. For the 1:25k particularly think extra
detail like landcover, placenames in two languages, walking tracks classification and mapping, accurate summit heights, corrected road classification, public/private road classification.

OSI
Good news appears to be here. They are now proposing to do new data capture. I.e. get new data from the real world and put it onto their maps. This is potentially the best news to have emerged from OSI in perhaps a decade. In particular they are consulting on what is needed with communities such as hillwalkers who are major users of their mapping.

Have a look at their survey.
