Townland Clipper

Projects Jun 1, 2019

A script written in Python that manipulates open datasets containing Irish townland geometry for better usability.

The script extracts a county's set of townlands that can be loaded into WME on its own (without the rest of the country) in order to improve performance.

Performance is still an issue for larger counties, so I am looking to split these files up further, possibly into half counties.

The  script is written in Python (this may be ported to another language in  the future to improve its performance, but Python is fine for now), and it accepts both generalised and ungeneralised GeoJSON files provided by

It is  worth noting that counties in Northern Ireland aren't included in the  datasets, so they are therefore not included as counties in the script.
