I am very new to OpenStreetMaps. I have found the following map online:
This has the tag: “census1901:ref 26” which leads me to believe that it represents the Cross Roads DED as used in 1901 census of Ireland. I have also found similar DED maps, for example at the bottom of this page you can see neighbouring DEDs for Cross Roads:
and in turn see the map for, for example, Gortahork DED which is tagged with: “census1901:ref 28”.
So, I am wondering if OpenStreetMaps contains a complete map of Ireland with all DEDs used in the 1901 census.
How can I see a map with all “census1901:ref” tags?
Hi & Welcome!
One way to see the “raw” data:
Go to http://overpass-turbo.eu/
In the “Wizard”, input
census1901:ref=* in Ireland
Execute the request (similar to http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/uYN))
You should get 40 Mo worth of data, for 400+ boundaries.
Answer is no
You should check the following resources:
Electoral Divisions have been mapped completely for the Republic of Ireland, and some or all of these may also be identical to those used in the 1901 census.
I suspect that many just have not had the reference used in 1901 added as a tag.
