Lineage It is important to note that this mapping uses the Irish Transverse Mercator (ITM) co-ordinate system. In order to facilitate users during the transition from Irish Grid (IG) to ITM, downloads will include both sets of co-ordinates. The existing point centroids for the records were digitised relative to the OSI 6-inch mapping and the move from this older IG-referenced series to the larger-scale ITM mapping will necessitate revisions.
