Pricing for the Seabed Survey

Data is freely available to download from

Charts can be downloaded from in .pdf format

Data deriving from the Irish National Seabed Survey are now available for purchase from the Geological Survey of Ireland. Pricing details are displayed here. Data is available in paper and digital form. GSI is currently working on a replacement for its now defunct e-store but it will be some time before it will be available. Due to the overwhelming demand for data usage, particularly from academic institutions, we have initiated a standard data application form. See data access for further details.
