MAGIC was the first web-based interactive map service to bring together environmental information from across government.
Partnership working has ensured that MAGIC has provided a sustained operational service to an extensive and diverse range of users far exceeding its original objectives and expectations of stakeholders.
Defra is the custodian of MAGIC with Natural England managing the service under the direction of a cross-government Steering Group.
