The GeoHive Gallery is where your saved map is stored. Browse through the saved maps or use the ‘User Gallery’ search function to locate your map. You can reopen your saved map, edit it and save it again. You can also view ‘Featured Content’ web applications here.
Our dynamic MapViewer makes it easier than ever to view data from multiple sources. Add items to the map, pan around and use the Zoom tools to view your data in greater detail. You can also zoom to your Location and return to the Home Extent using Navigation Tools. Click on an item in the MapViewer to view a pop up box with more information.
Use the Search bar to search through GeoHive data, addresses and coordinate locations. Click on the suggested results to zoom to the address or to add the data to the map. Map coordinates are searchable in ITM, Irish Grid or Lat/Long formats.
The easy to use Transparency slider gives you more control over the data to suit your needs. Compare and contrast data by adjusting the transparency. This is particularly useful when viewing multiple Basemaps at the same time.
There are 3 Data types available in the MapViewer:
- Map Services (incl. dropdown sub layers)
- Feature Services (sub layers)
In Selection you can use the arrows to easily reorder items of the same Data Type.
Search through the GeoHive Data Catalogue to view descriptions and endpoints for each of the datasets. This easy to use Catalogue has various sub-categories and a search function to enable effortless discovery of REST Services (Map Services and Feature Services), OGC WMS Services, and KML Services.
Click on the ‘i’ icon beside the data item to discover its metadata. The Info box provides a detailed description of the data, a legend and an option to copy the service URL. It also includes the data administrator contact details if you require further information on the data item.
