The Irish Historic Towns Atlas (IHTA) project was established in 1981. The aim of the project is to record the topographical development of a selection of Irish towns both large and small. Each town is published separately as a fascicle or folder and includes a series of maps complemented by a detailed text section. The Irish Historic Towns Atlas is part of a wider European scheme, with towns atlases containing broadly similar information available for a number of countries. Thus Irish towns can be studied in their European context.
Irish Historic Towns Atlas
An international workshop examining the base map for the Historic Towns Atlas took place in Academy House with pariticpants from the Irish, British, Hungarian, Polish and German projects.
