  • Displays wrecks from the National Monuments Service’s Wreck Inventory of Ireland Database (WIID) for which there is a recorded location. There is data held within the WIID on a large number of wrecks for which we have no precise recorded location, co-ordinate or known extent. Of the approximate 18,000 records, only 4,000 have precise locations leaving approximately 14,000 wrecks in the WIID database for which a location has yet to be confirmed. The location given equates with the known approximate centre point of the wreck and is not indicative of its geographic or spatial extent. Wrecks in the database have a summary description, providing information on the original vessel, their history, voyage, cargo, passengers and the story of its loss, where known. The data has been collated from a variety of sources including INFOMAR, UKHO, and

  • This layer summarizes the systems of calcarenite quarrels present on Favignana island

  • This dataset shows locations of monuments within 2km of the Irish coastline as recorded in the Archaeological Survey of Ireland (ASI) dataset. The ASI has focused on recording monuments dating from before AD 1700, along with more recent sites selected according to their interest or merit.

  • This dataset displays the coastal UNESCO World Heritage sites across the island of Ireland.

  • This dataset shows the locations of towns identified in the Royal Irish Academy (RIA) Historic Towns Atlas. The Historic Towns Atlas displays towns of over 3000 inhabitants and urban district towns along with information about their origin. The Atlas was used to identify the settlements and the locations were digitised based on coordinates for the settlements. The dataset shows towns within 2 km of the coast.

  • The sea along the Slovenian coast was long thought to be empty and devoid of interest as far as vestiges of the past were concerned. Some decades ago, however, fishers began reporting on wooden timbers caught in their nets, amateur fishermen were observing wooden hulls during breath-hold diving on undisclosed locations and divers with autonomous diving gear were relating fascinating shipwrecks from World War II, which revealed quite a different picture. The sea has since been scientifically investigated, and in the last two decades, members of the Scientific Research Section of the Port of Koper Divers’ Society have compiled a list of 20 sunken objects, while new data has also been acquired by the high-resolution bathymetric survey of the Slovenian seafloor in 2006-2008. The cultural heritage register at the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia today includes 52 underwater areas, both coastline and sea, with cultural remains. However, more than 90 observed underwater areas which are not in National cultural heritage register are recognised as anthropogenic changes which are connected to the transgression of Adriatic sea to the Nord Adriatic Sea finished around 5000 years ago. Almost 37 registered sites are wrecks among them also the earliest known shipwreck in Slovenia, dating to the Roman period. This register represents the first step towards fulfilling the commitments of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.
