Historic Environment Digital Datasets

Date published: 07 October 2015

Last updated: 14 June 2024

The following Historic Environment Division datasets are available for download. Unless otherwise stated, the datasets are updated on a monthly schedule and are supplied for use under an Open Government Licence. These datasets (and other HED datasets) can also be found through the Open Data NI Portal. For further information contact Historic Environment.


The Sites and Monuments GIS layer and associated database are currently undergoing maintenance, which is causing delays in updating them with new information. HED are aware that in a small number of cases locational information may need to be corrected, but if you have any queries about an individual site, please contact Historic Environment Record of Northern Ireland (HERoNI). For Scheduled Monuments, the Scheduled Zones layer is an indicative dataset, and you should request copies of the official scheduling declarations held by HERoNI if you are considering any new work that might affect these sites.
