Outline Maps: Commentary - Martin Melaugh

These maps are provided as background information. Due to the small size of many of the urban wards it is not possible to read their names on a map drawn to the scale of Northern Ireland. These maps may therefore be of use to researchers who are viewing other map sets which provide results (say, deaths) at ward level. Even researchers based in Northern Ireland are unlikely to be familiar with the precise boundaries and names of many of the 582 wards.

Notes

The GIS maps listed above have been produced as part of the AHRC 'Visualising the Conflict' Project. The maps have been reproduced and made available with the permission of Land & Property Services under Delegated Authority from the Controller of HMSO, © Crown Copyright and database right 2010; Permit Number: 40209.

All maps were prepared by Luke Kelleher, then a Research Associate (GIS) working with CAIN. All maps were sized A4 (approximately). GIS software was used to produce TIFF versions (A4 approx; 300dpi) which are available on request. Three versions of each map have been made available above:

  • PDF versions (A4 approx; 300dpi) are based on original TIFF files.
  • L-JPG versions (1000px700p approx; 72dpi) are low resolution JPEG images.
  • H-JPG versions (A4 approx; 300dpi) are high resolution JPEG images.
