The Challenge

  • Ireland's biodiversity data was scattered across the country and much of it was hidden in little known archives, museums and libraries.

The Solution

  • Compass Informatics proposed and developed a mapping and data management system for the Data Centre based on Esri ArcGIS Server technology.




  • The use of ArcGIS Server has enabled the National Biodiversity Data Centre to make these incredible valuable datasets accessible to anyone via the internet.


"Our use of GIS has really helped to bring natural science in Ireland into the 21st century. "
