    Hi,
    I'm looking for a CAD map of Cork city or as much of it as possible. It's for my final year college project (I need to make a large scale model of an area) I don't need it for commercial purposes (otherwise I'd buy it). Does anyone know where I could get my hands on it for free?

  • You won't get it for free too easily.
    OSi have most of ireland in vector format but its not cheap.
    You might get lucky if a engineering or architects practise have done some work in the area. They would have a cad file that may be large enough. But they might not just hand it out, commercial or not.




  • I would try Cork City Council mapping section (if there is one). I got a digital version of a vector map off the mapping section in Dublin City Council who were very helpful for my thesis. It was free.. You will have to sign a disclaimer to declare you will not be using it for commercial purposes. Best of Luck !!!

    Thanks Pat, I think I should be ok with a complete vector map of the city now ;-) I'm having trouble getting a contour map though. I guess with the road levels I can guesstimate the contours, it'll just be a bit of extra work, and with Boards back now I dunno how much work I'll be able to do :-0
