What is the mapping system?

It can be regarded as the computer-based equivalent of a map but an important difference is that it's interactive allowing users to move around the maps and query certain layers of mapped information presented. Within Ceredigion County Council, maps are used in a variety of ways from locating traffic accidents to analysing school catchments areas etc. Ceredigion Maps enables you to access Ordnance Survey (OS) and mapped data layers provided by a number of Ceredigion County Council departments. Collections of mapped data layers are known as "Themes" when viewed in Ceredigion Maps.

Wherever possible public domain mapped data will be presented via Ceredigion Maps in both Welsh and English.
