The Scottish Marine Regions are 11 areas established for the purposes of regional marine planning, defined by The Scottish Marine Regions Order 2015. These regions are sub-areas of both the "Scottish marine area" defined in the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010 and "Scottish inshore region" defined in the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009. Marine planning will take place at a local level within these regions, where regional marine planning will be delegated to Marine Planning Partnerships (MPPs).
River water bodies were designated on the basis of WFD United Kingdom Technical Advisory Group (UKTAG) guidance. Reviewed annually based upon new information relating to pressures.
A geomorphological assemblage map of the Cairngorm Mountains, from Glen Feshie in the west to Loch Builg in the east. The Cairngorm Mountains represent one of the finest assemblages of glacial and mountain landforms in the world, particularly noted for the diversity of features in a relatively compact area. These features incorporate a wealth of information about past environmental change and landscape evolution through periods of tropical, ice age and modern temperate climates. This landform heritage represents a precious educational and environmental resource, one which is unusual in the wide range and quality of the features that have taken millions of years to evolve. The area has been recognised as "unquestionably of international importance, particularly for the close juxtaposition of relic landscape and of glacial erosion and deposition" (Cairngorms Working Party, 1993, p.13 paragraph 220.127.116.11). http://www.snh.gov.uk/publications-data-and-research/publications/search-the-catalogue/publication-detail/?id=1546

Many Local Authorities capture locational details of certain safety features located across their area of jurisdiction. This dataset attempts to pull those features together into one single national dataset. It currently contains defibrillator, water access points, fire hydrant, lifebelt and CCTV locations where local authorities have provided them. It is likely that this dataset will be superseded and/ or conflated into a national emergency services gazetteer as and when that is created.
Industrial sites listed in the Scottish Pollutant Release Inventory (SPRI) are required to report the total amounts of a substance that they emit to air or water during the period of a year.
