Via a website interface where you can print a basic map. To do this click on one of the links in the Using MapGenie via website interface box below. The link with the most map series available in it is MapGenie Cached ITM Service. Step-by-step instructions are in the Powerpoint below: OSi MapGenie is a web mapping service that provides online, immediate access to the mapping collections of Ordnance Survey Ireland ranging from the historic 19th century 6inch maps to current large scale data. MapGenie is ideal for use in any subject or discipline which includes location data - so it's not just for geography, archaeology or planning but for disciplines ranging from business, science, history, politics, medicine and engineering to architecture, literature, environmental studies and tourism. Here you will find questions and answers on MapGenie. We will add more as we receive questions and prepare answers for these. Whatever discipline you are teaching, researching or studying will include location data. Likewise administrative staff deal with data which includes location based information. Visualising this on a map can transform a table of spatial data into something which is more clearly understood and reveal new insights. By using a software package such as ArcGIS 10.1 you can use the OSI mapping available in MapGenie and then add your own data. Do NOT share these details with any other person, as this would be a violation of OSi copyright and a breach of the terms and conditions under which UCD Library has subscribed to MapGenie. When you access MapGenie via ArcGIS 10.1 you can simply put this MapGenie link https://mapgenie.osi.ie/arcgis/rest/services/ into the ArcGIS Server wizard and all the MapGenie layers will pop up.
