WHAT IS MAGIC?

MAGIC stands for Multi-Agency Geographic Information for the Countryside. This website provides authoritative geographic information about the natural environment from across government. The information covers rural, urban, coastal and marine environments across Great Britain. We currently present over 400 datasets in our interactive map, which can be explored using various mapping tools. Natural England manages this service under direction set out by a Steering Group of MAGIC partnership organisations.

Significant updates have been made to our Oil and Gas data from the North Sea Transition Authority this month. As part of this, we’ve changed some dataset names for clarity; Licence Blocks (GB) is now Petroleum Licences (GB), Surface Infrastructure (GB) is now Surface Petroleum Infrastructure (GB) and Subsurface Infrastructure (GB) is now Subsea Petroleum Infrastructure (GB). This data can be found within the ‘Marine’ category, under the ‘Socio-Economic’ sub-heading in the Table of Contents. More on Data updates can be found here.
