Esri Ireland’s interactive map celebrates Pride in Ireland

  • Esri Ireland has revealed its interactive StoryMap, ‘The History of Pride in Ireland’, in celebration of this year’s LGBTQ+ Pride Month (1st-30th June).

    Built using Esri’s ArcGIS digital mapping system, the map visualises the journey of the LGBTQ+ community in Ireland, including major historical dates, locations and events which defined the movement towards a more diverse and inclusive Ireland.:

    It guides people through the years, from the annual picnics in Merrion Square during the 1970s to raise awareness of the Stonewall Riots, to the legalisation of same-sex marriage in both Ireland and Northern Ireland in more recent years.

    The map also highlights this year’s Dublin Pride Festival (22nd-28th June) and the 2022 Dublin Pride Parade (25th June) – returning as an in-person event for the first time since 2019 – as well as other activities happening in Belfast, Cork, Derry, Limerick and Mayo.
