The MAGIC website provides authoritative geographic information about the natural environment from across government. The information covers rural, urban, coastal and marine environments across Great Britain. It is presented in an interactive map which can be explored using various mapping tools that are included. Natural England manages the service under the direction of a Steering Group who represent the MAGIC partnership organisations.
We have made a change to how datasets are switched on in the interactive map. You will need to click on the dataset you want to view for the layer to turn on; you will no longer be able to switch on multiple datasets at once. This is to improve site performance as we were finding that multiple users switching on multiple datasets at once was slowing the website down. More on Data updates can be found here
