Abstract: Subsoils Map: Teagasc has created the first national subsoils map to a standardised methodology; The Teagasc Subsoils map classifies the subsoils of Ireland into 16 themes, using digital stereo photogrammetry supported by field work; The subsoils map has a nominal working scale of 1:50,000; The subsoils maps for each county are now freely available to all researchers. Landcover Map: Teagasc has created the first and only national landcover map for an Irish project; The Teagasc Landcover 1995 (TLC95) map classifies the landcover of Ireland into 16 themes; It maps to a minimum size of 1 Ha; Landcover maps for each county are now freely available to all researchers. Indicative Soils Map: Teagasc has developed a national indicative soils map to a standardised methodology; The indicative soils map classifies the soils of Ireland on a categorically simplified but cartographically detailed basis into 25 classes, using an expert rule based methodology; The soils map has a nominal working scale of 1:100,000-1:150,000; The soils maps for each county are now freely available to all researchers. Habitat Indicator Map: Teagasc has created the only national habitat map for an Irish project; The Teagasc Habitat Indicator Map 1995 (THIM95) map classifies Ireland into 27 habitat themes; It maps to a minimum size of 1 Ha; Habitat maps for each county are now freely available to all researchers.
