MUT's Interactive Map of Carrigtwohill

Student's Degree Module

Phase I of Carrigtwohill's Interactive Map with accompanying series of videos had been Designed and Developed by a small team of Munster Technological University Students (formerly CIT) of Class 2021 as an examination module, ‘User Experience Design’ for their Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in ‘Creative Digital Media’, with Maria Murray, a native of Carrigtwohill as their lecturer.

Then during the summer months of that year, a much small team returned to complete a more comprehensive phase II of the project. For this second phase the team came under the direction of our society, and have cooperated fully with our requirements, producing a magnificent series of videos.

Members of Carrigtwohill & District Historical Society provided the narration for the videos, in addition to the scripts which, in the main were of two hundred words dictated by the students’ college brief for project; with many of the parish's images being provided by our historical society.

Interactive Map Design & Development

To view each video which in the main are between 1:30 and 2:30 minutes duration, simply open above menu and click on ‘MTU Village Map'. This will open the Interactive Map of Carrigtwohill with seven locations we have initially identified as sites of significant importance verifying Carrigtwohill’s rich heritage. The videos also document the protected structures as detailed ‘under the provisions of the Architectural Heritage (National Inventory) and Historic Monuments (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1999.’

The base map used for our interactive map is an edited extract of the historic 25 inch map (1889-1913), and will be of particularly relevance for those with an interest in the rich social and cultural history of Carrigtwohill. These are to be found on Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSI) mapping system generated by Geohive.ie.

Hover over each location to see title, then click on item number to view. Once viewed open again above menu to return 'MTU Village Map' or close to return to main Carrigtwohill menu.
