New National Map of High Nature Value farmland in Ireland now on-line

One of the outputs of the HNV project was creating a national HNV indicator map for Ireland.

This digital map is now on line, on the Teagasc map viewer.

The map is shows the likelihood of finding HNV farmland in an ED, with 5 being almost certain to find HNV and 1 being almost certain not to find HNV.

Technical details can be found on the map construction are published in the Journal of Maps:
