Ordnance Survey Ireland is unable to become involved in property boundary disputes. If you need an expert to prepare evidence, there are a number of relevant professional organisations including: The Society of Chartered Surveyors (SCS) provides a searchable database of Land Surveyors who can act as Expert Witnesses and prepare evidence for court. The Irish Institution of […]
Unfortunately Ordnance Survey Ireland does not keep records or surveyors’ notes of site visits. The map becomes the only record kept. The OSI are unable to comment on the detail of specific features shown on the mapping or provide reasons why or how a feature is shown on the map.
Ordnance Survey Ireland welcomes all customer feedback about the content and accuracy of their mapping. We understand that there may be a delay between changes taking place on the ground and when they are able to capture them within our continuous mapping revision programme. Any issues relating to the content or accuracy of our mapping that […]
Where a fence, hedge or wall runs approximately parallel to another feature and so close that they cannot both be plotted correctly at the scale of survey, then only one feature is shown.
Ordnance Survey Ireland maps use the same line symbol for a wall, fence, hedge, bank, ditch and stream. Where many features are represented in close proximity it may not be possible to represent them all at the scale of the mapping and it may not be obvious from the map which feature the line represents. Even if a […]
No. Ordnance Survey Ireland mapping does not depict legal property boundaries nor do the OSi attempt to show property ownership on the OSi map. OSI only show the existence of physical features on the ground at the time of survey, which are surveyed to Ordnance Survey Ireland specification and accuracy standards. Although some property boundaries […]
If you feel that mapping of your registered title is incorrect, please contact the Land Registry at the earliest stage to establish if they can assist.
It is not possible even when using the highest order of survey techniques to achieve perfect accuracy when drawing/digitising features on a map. OSI maps are therefore subject to accuracy limitations. This means that scaled measurements between features shown on the map may not exactly match the actual distance measured between the same features on […]
No. The Land Registry map is an index map and identifies property, not boundaries. Therefore, we are not in a position to advise.
