Abstract

This paper reviews the mid-nineteenth century land valuation and soils maps promoted by Sir Robert Kane. Compiled by hand in colour on the printed base of Ordnance Survey county index sheets, these maps represent a pioneer initiative in the detailed mapping of variations in land quality in Ireland, and may claim a significant place in the histories of thematic mapping and agricultural science in Ireland
