Three datasets of images of approximately 1 square km of land area in Dublin City in 2007. Images were captured through use of the Fugro FLI-MAP family of LiDAR systems which capture LiDAR and still camera imagery simultaneously during a fly-over survey. Each dataset includes “forward” and “mapping” imagery comprising complementary data files in ECW and SDIA formats.
Aerial laser scanning (ALS) data collected over an area of around 1 square km in Dublin city in 2007 (see satellite image). A total of ~225 million points were acquired for a dense urban neighbourhood. ALS was carried out by contractors using FLI-MAP 2 system. The system operated at a scan angle of 60 degrees, with an angular spacing of 60/1000 degrees between pulses. The FLI-MAP 2 system also provides spectral data in two different forms: (i) intensity and (ii) colour. An intensity value is provided for each point while colour information is provided by cameras acquiring images during the flyover and is transferred to scan points. The flying altitude varied between ~380-480m, with an average value of ~400m. Total 44 flight strips were acquired and 2823 flight path points were recorded, providing instantaneous aircraft position over time.
Data recovered from the project "Historic Ireland's Build Environment and Road Network Inventory Access" (HIBERNIA), which had been a web enablement of two earlier inventories: the Dublin Environmental Inventory (DEI) and the Dublin Docklands area master plan inventory (DDAMP) (both undertaken by the School of Architecture, Landscape and Civil Engineering, University College Dublin). The combined inventories include historical, geographical, and architectural information collected from 1993 to 1995 for 1,280 of Dublin's buildings.
Nine Thom’s maps of the city and environs of Dublin from the collection of the School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Policy (GPEP). Printed by the Ordnance Survey for the Dublin publisher Alexander Thom from the six-inch map sheets 18 and 22, and dating from the late 19th century. The maps have been annotated with hand written dates made by Dr. Arnold Horner, formerly of GPEP, and based on information in J.H. Andrew’s article "Medium and message in early six-inch Irish Ordnance Maps: the case of Dublin city". These loose maps were originally published in Thom’s annual Almanac and Official Directory.
The Urban Modelling Group (UMG) is based in the UCD School of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at University College Dublin. Professor Debra F Laefer heads this group and it formed in 2006 to bridge the efforts of the architectural heritage community and those of practising engineers by introducing, adapting, and generating new technologies to help safeguard built urban heritage.
INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics creates a healthier, safer, more productive world by empowering a data-driven society to enable better decisions by individuals, communities, business and governments. Insight brings together leading Irish academics from 5 of Ireland's leading research centres (DERI, CLARITY, CLIQUE, 4C, TRIL), previously established by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and the Irish Industrial Development Authority (IDA), in key areas of priority research including: The Semantic Web, Sensors and the Sensor Web, Social network analysis, Decision Support and Optimization, and Connected Health.
A collection of photographs from the albums of G. & T. Crampton, one of Dublin's best-known construction companies. The photographs were intended as a record of the building projects which the firm undertook rather than a formal archive. They cover a wide range of buildings including commercial buildings, shops, houses, hospitals, and factories. The projects covered by the collection include new builds, renovations, extensions, and restorations. While the firm has undertaken work throughout Ireland, the majority of the photographs are of projects in the Dublin area.
