In order to maximise the possible map display area the NPWS MapViewer launches within a pop up. In addition the Map Viewer Help File, the Detailed Results page, the Print Map View and the Download Tool all use popups.
You are not required to uninstall your anti-popup software. This section describes how you may set several of the most common popup blockers to allow popups from this site. Our recommendation is that you allow popups from the www.npws.ie and www.designatednatureareas.ie/mapviewer domains. Due to the large number of pop-up blockers it is not possible to provide a comprehensive guide. For instructions on other pop-up blockers, please refer to your popup blocker users guide.
It is possible to have several popup blockers running simultaneously. If this is the case on your system you may have to allow popups from www.npws.ie and www.designatednatureareas.ie/mapviewer on each one.
