Waterways Ireland has developed an Online Navigation Guide for the Lower River Bann for use on computers, tablets and mobile phones

Developed using ArcGIS online, this interactive web mapping application details navigation features such as locks, moorings, weirs, navigation markers and other facilities along the waterway.

GPS surveys or digitising onscreen using Ordnance Survey Maps have been used to capture the location of features.

The application enables the public to pan around the map, identify features, print maps, switch between base mapping & satellite view and switch on and off layers. The Lower Bann Guide is complete and available for free on our website and can be viewed on a PC, tablet or smartphone.

Waterways Ireland will update the maps on an ongoing basis so that the latest navigational information is always available online.

Ongoing feedback is welcomed from users to keep the mapping information accurate.

Broadband access or a wifi link will be required to use the online navigation guide.
