LUC maps dark skies and light pollution in County Mayo

LUC has published an interactive map illustrating the darkest skies and areas of light pollution in County Mayo, Ireland in a project funded by The Heritage Council.

The project ‘Protecting the Night Skies of County Mayo’ shows how artificial lighting is affecting County Mayo, highlighting areas with the darkest night skies as well as areas affected by light pollution. The map raises awareness of the growing issue and identifies where lighting improvements or adjustments could be made to reduce its impact.

LUC’s Head of GIS & Visualisation, Diana Manson, will be discussing LUCs dark skies mapping work in England and Ireland at the Esri UK Annual Conference in May.

Diana’s presentation will cover the use of spatial analytics tools to develop the maps and share her thoughts on our up-to-date national map of England’s light pollution, commissioned by CPRE, including the potential to use the mapping to tackle light pollution through planning.
