This dataset is a complete coverage of mapped and digitized Mountain Glaciation Corries landforms for Ireland.

This dataset forms part of the Quaternary geology of Ireland – Geomorphology Map which is a representation of Irish glacial geomorphological features at a scale of 1 to 50,000. The map shows categorised erratic carriage sources and sinks, subglacial lineations and striae, subglacial moraines, ice-marginal landforms and mountain glaciation corries and trimlines.

The Geomorphology dataset originally comprised individual feature layers that were subsequently merged from 25 single feature layers to 9 sub-groups, Mountain Glaciation Corries is one of these subgroups.Mountain Glaciation Corries: - This dataset contains a complete coverage for all mapped and digitised corries features for the island of Ireland. The map forms part of the GSI Quaternary Map series. Data recorded on the maps includes the locations of corries, corrie name, grade, length, width, circularity, minimum altitude, maximum altitude, height, aspect, plan closure, hypsometry, area and reference.The dataset have been compiled from a variety of sources, including academic papers, and the feature outlines were then drawn on OSi Colour Aerial Photography.

Provenance information 1. Filenames: MOUNTAIN_GLACIATION_CORRIES.shpDate (15/09/2015). Originator - Quaternary & Geotechnical Section, Geological Survey of Ireland. Nature of change/update to data - There is an ongoing programme of digitizing all archival Quaternary data held by the GSI. Methodology - The corrie files have been compiled from a variety of sources, including academic papers, and the feature outlines were then drawn on OSi Colour Aerial Photography. This dataset contains a complete coverage for all mapped and digitised corrie features for the island of Ireland. The map forms part of the GSI Quaternary Map series. The "Mountain Glaciation Corries“ data layer is a line feature in an ESRI File Geodatabase supported by attribute identification and symbolized in ArcMap using the Quaternary master style file ( Quat_Geomorphology_Master.style) and a layer file MOUNTAIN GLACIATION (.lyr).Sources used as input data for the Change /update.-Revision is sanctioned as of 15/09/2015.Scripts/tools used. - Build/Clean/ Topologise tools in ArcGIS.
