The Source to Tap Mapping Portal provides you with an exciting opportunity to explore your local water environment from the comfort of home. The Mapping Portal gives you online access to a selection of datasets, or layers of information, about your local rivers and lakes, that can be turned on and off, to allow you to view different aspects of the water environment.
When you click on the map image the Mapping Portal will open in a separate window called ArcGIS Online.
Why a mapping portal?
Data and evidence are a critical part of integrated catchment management,
whereby coordinated planning and management of a river catchment takes place by a group of stakeholders operating under agreed terms of engagement. Thus, helping to engage a wide audience, agree on the priority issues and solutions, and monitor outcomes.
Effective visualisation of data through maps, infographics and other media helps develop an understanding of complex environmental systems, builds confidence and eases communication between a wide range of people and organisations who need to work in partnership to improve the water environment.
Source to Tap Story Maps
The Source to Tap Story Maps are interactive maps that allow you to explore the Erne and Derg river systems and the Source to Tap Project through images, text and multi-media content, clipped to a map of the area.
You don’t need to be an expert in geography or even be able to read a map to enjoy the Source to Tap Story Maps. We have designed them so that they can be used and enjoyed by anyone who wants to learn more about our precious rivers and lakes and the water world around us.
