Buildingc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://ontologies.geohive.ie/osi#Building

A Building is a human construction, designed for residence, shelter storage, or a business premises. A building will have a Building Point geometry, and if it is an addressable building it will also have an address point. The building object will be linked to the access Way network. A residential building that is not on a permanent foundation (e.g. a mobile home) will be shown as a building point. It will also have an address point, and be linked to the access Way network.

Electoral Divisions are the smallest legally defined administrative areas in the Republic of Ireland for which Small Area Population Statistics are published from the Census. In other words, they are the smallest administrative area for which population statistics are published.

Local Electoral Areac back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://ontologies.geohive.ie/osi#LocalElectoralArea

Local Electoral Areas, or LEAs, are generally formed by aggregating electoral divisions for the purpose of electing local councillors. There are, however, a number of electoral divisions that have been divided between LEAs to facilitate electors.

Municipal Districtc back to ToC or Class ToC

IRI: http://ontologies.geohive.ie/osi#MunicipalDistrict

A municipal district fors a new tier of local governance at a sub-county level. In general each municipal district corresponds to a single LEA; however some districts are split into multiple LEAs. In addition, the three cities and three counties which have no district-level subunits are nevertheless split into multiple LEAs. The names and extents of municipal districts and LEAs are defined by statutory instrument in terms of lower-level units called electoral divisions (EDs).
