MAGIC (also known as Nature Map) is an online tool which provides geographic information about the natural environment from across government. 
The MAGIC website was originally launched in 2002, and in 2012 the website was updated and re-launched in May 2013. 
The information covers rural, urban, coastal and marine environments across Great Britain. It is presented in an interactive map which can be explored using the various mapping tools provided.
Natural England manages the service under the direction of a Steering Group who represent the MAGIC organisations, these include: The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, English Heritage, Natural England, Environment Agency, Forestry Commission, and the Marine Management Organisation.
It is presented in an interactive map which can be explored using various mapping tools that are included.  Users do not require specialist software and can access maps using a standard web browser, but there are options to download some datasets when available. MAGIC is now managed by Natural England.


The Catchment-Based Approach website is designed to showcase the work of catchment partnerships aross England and Wales and to encourage the sharing and adoption of best practice in stakeholder-led catchment managment planning, delivery and evaluation.
