A new national geoscience agency will begin operations next month, the latest of several to come up with new ideas to support the island’s future.
The National Geospatial Agency will launch a range of exhibitions in the coming weeks in a bid to better understand the islanders’ daily lives and the cultural, economic and social impact of their changing location, including a series on how they work, where they live and how they travel.
The programme will focus on local people and cultural events, and will be organised by the National Geographic Ireland, the agency’s new regional director, Anne Leibovitch.
“Geospatial data and analysis is at the heart of every project we undertake,” Ms Leibovich said.
“We’re working with people all over Ireland to create a digital world where the future of our island is the future.”
“We want to create new opportunities for people who live in the capital, Dublin, to connect with each other and share ideas and experiences.”
It’s a very exciting time to be working in Ireland.
“Geoscience research, tourism and the development of the tourism industry are among the activities planned for the new project.”
There are a lot of issues that are at the core of this island and the economic, cultural and social implications of our changing location,” Ms Lehovich said, adding that the agency had been looking to develop new ways to make a positive impact on the people of the island.”
This will include an exploration of the role of geospacial data in the tourism sector, with the intention of connecting people from all walks of life to our unique heritage.
“In its inaugural programme, the new agency will aim to create the most in-depth geospaces of the world.
The new exhibition will focus particularly on the impact of tourism on the local economy, and on how people use the landscape to create an immersive and engaging experience.
Ms Leibvich said the new collection would highlight the cultural and economic impact of the change, and would also help to create connections with people in rural areas, such as those in Galway and Limerick.”
The images will be interactive, using interactive technology that will enable people to look at the world through different lenses.””
They are a part of the story and they can share in this story.”

Geospacial analysis is a vital tool for geographers, but it has also attracted controversy.
In February, a series called ‘What You Can See’ was launched by the University of Limerick in partnership with the National Geographic Society, which questioned whether the new exhibition should be classified as research.
“What We Can See” is based on photographs taken by a geographer, which has been shown in a number of exhibitions across Europe.
The aim is to highlight the differences between different types of geocoding.
“In the case of Ireland, it is really difficult to get accurate geocodes,” Ms Leah said.
