Compass Informatics supported Pobal in the redevelopment of Pobal Maps in 2015 – The solution has not had significant updates since then, in both application development and hosted infrastructure.
Compass was engaged with Pobal in November 2022 to upgrade of their GIS Environment and modernise the Pobal Maps Solution.
The old GIS Environment that Compass built in 2015 consists of an ArcGIS Online Account with two ArcGIS Desktop licences and ArcGIS Server 10.4.1.

- Childcare Services- Find A Childcare Service
- Deprivation- Pobal HP Deprivation Indices
- General Data- Access general administrative and transport data
- Geo-Profiling- Generate demographic and deprivation analytical reports
- Pobal Services- Access a range of Pobal funded programmes
