The majority of site boundaries were originally digitised from Ordnance Survey of Ireland 1:10560 six-inch raster data in Irish Grid. Over time an increasing number of site boundaries in this dataset will be replotted to Ordnance Survey of Ireland 1:5000 vector mapping in Irish Transverse Mercator. The spatial dataset and associated web services contain two feature level metadata fields: SOURCE_SCALE AND SOURCE_CRS to identify the source scale and projection that the site boundary feature is derived from. The INSPIRE Directive or INSPIRE lays down a general framework for a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) for the purposes of European Community environmental policies and policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment.
