School Information Map is a free interactive Irish platform that enables users to see the location of different schools in Ireland and to explore which schools offer facilities for special educational needs. The platform is a joint initiative of the National Council for Special Education (NCSE), the Department of Education & Skills (DES), and the Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) and aims to support parents in selecting a school for their children. The NCSE, DES and OSi collect data from schools across Ireland, such as their location, contact information, the contact details of NCSE staff in the user’s location, and the provided facilities at the school.
School Information Map is one of the over 450 use cases published on the European Data Portal.
