Map Set 23: Physical Memorials - Introduction

Maps - Physical memorials related to the conflict, in Belfast, Derry, and Northern Ireland (7 maps)

image of map Using the latitude and longitude co-ordinates recorded in the CAIN database of memorials, it was possible to plot the locations of the memorials. The information used to locate and plot each memorial is provided by CAIN’s Database of Physical Memorials to the conflict in Northern Ireland
 (http://cain.ulst.ac.uk/victims/memorials/search.html)

The memorials were classified by both Nature (Civilian; British Security; Republican Paramilitary; Loyalist Paramilitary; and Other) and Physical Type (Plaques; Murals; Memorial Gardens; Memorial Stones; Memorial Enclosures; and Other Memorials).
This set of maps, also illustrates the distribution of the Catholic population. Data is mapped at electoral ward level and is based on the 2001 Northern Ireland Census survey results.  The religious background data was downloaded from the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency
(http://www.nisranew.nisra.gov.uk/census/Census2001Output/

)
The table used was titled Table 7S07b Community Background: Religion or Religion Brought Up In
 The electoral ward shapefile was downloaded from EDINA borders website. (http://borders.edina.ac.uk/html/lut_download/ni_ward.html)

  • Health Deprivation and Disability 15%
  • Education, Skills and Training Deprivation 15%
