Land Registry Compliant Map

Land Registry Compliant Maps are a single detailed largescale site map for Land Registration purposes. The function of an OSi Land Registry Compliant Map is

  • To provide a map of the Area-of-Interest for submission to the Property Registration Authority in support of a Land Registry application.
  • To provide a map of the Area-of-Interest, for submission to the Property Registration Authority for the purpose of buying or selling land.
  • To provide a map of the Area-of-Interest for submission to the Property Registration Authority in support of First Registrations, Subdivisions of Registered Property and Rights over Registered Property etc.

The Property Registration Authority (formerly Land Registry) accepts Ordnance Survey Ireland Land Registry Compliant Maps, with Irish Transverse Mercator (ITM) co-ordinates shown on the upper right corner and the lower left corner. A Land Registry Compliant Map is an extract (A4 or A3 size) of the most up to date mapping detail for the defined Area of Interest. The map is supplied as a PDF file.

Note: Land Registry Compliant maps contain specific data map layers that make it unsuitable for planning purposes. The maps are available to purchase and download from our online store from [email protected] .


Digital Landscape Models – DLMCore Large Scale Data

Our DLMCore data is extracted from OSi’s PRIME database; a standardised, authoritative digital framework that enables the consistent referencing and integration of data related to location. This is a detailed database of roads, rivers, buildings and all the features you’d expect to find on a large scale map and is available in a range of formats and projections. The data included in our DLMCore products comes from a combination of sources; re-engineered data from OSi’s previous digital database, and new data plotted from orthophotography or captured on site by GPS. The Digital Landscape Model (DLM) allows the data to be attributed with metadata, including text labels (placenames etc.), and lifecycle status (indicating when individual objects were first mapped, emended, or deleted).
