For those who may be interested -

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland will see a new GSI mapping application joining PRONI`S website (

This will allow the user to zoom into modern maps, or search modern maps using townland names, and then use a slider to overlay the modern view with historical maps of the area. This new FREE system will go live, along with most of the existing PRONI website content, on the government's new NIDirect platform before the end of March
