This dataset contains a complete coverage for all mapped and digitised meltwater features for the island of Ireland. The map forms part of the GSI Quaternary Map series

Data recorded on the map includes the location and outline of the following geomorphological features:

1) Esker Ridge: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized locations of eskerbodies for Republic of Ireland including name of the landform, background data source and classification on the feature.The esker features have been compiled from a variety of sources, including academic papers, and the feature outlines were then drawn on OSi Colour Aerial Photography. An Esker is a long, winding ridge of stratified sand and gravel. Eskers are frequently several kilometres long and, because of their peculiar uniform shape, are somewhat like railway embankment.

2) Meltwater Channels: - Complete coverage for all mapped and digitized meltwater features for Republic of Ireland including name of the landform and background data source. The map forms part of the GSI Quaternary Map series. Data recorded on the map includes the locations of meltwater channels, as well as attribute fields such as data source and channel length.

Data recorded on the maps includes the locations of meltwater channels, as well as attribute fields such as data source and channel length.

The map together with the catalogue constitute the dataset
