Air Monitoring Sites in Scotland
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.
The Land Capability Classification for Agriculture has as its objective the presentation of detailed information on soil, climate and relief in a form which will be of value to land use planners, agricultural advisers, farmers and others involved in optimising the use of land resources. The classification ranks land on the basis of its potential productivity and cropping flexibility determined by the extent to which its physical characteristics (soil, climate and relief) impose long term restrictions on its agricultural use. THE CLASSES Class 1. Land capable of producing a very wide range of crops with high yields Class 2. Land capable of producing a wide range of crops with yields less high than Class 1. Class 3. Land capable of producing good yields from a moderate range of crops. Class 4. Land capable of producing a narrow range of crops. Class 5. Land suited only to improved grassland and rough grazing. Class 6. Land capable only of use as rough grazing. Class 7. Land of very limited agricultural value. THE DIVISIONS A division is a ranking within a class. As the requirements of the crops suited to Classes 1 and 2 are fairly stringent, land in these classes has inherently low degrees of internal variability and no divisions are present. The requirements of crops grown in the remaining classes are less rigorous, consequently land included is more variable in character.
This data set has been developed by assimilating spatial data from Scottish Natural Heritage. The whole country has not yet been surveyed and as a result the data set only displays known wetlands. The wetland inventory database comprises a number of fields that include the main WFD95 wetland type, the original habitat survey information and whether the wetland polygon is within a statutory designated site. The wetland typology (WFD95) is used as the main identifying field for each polygon in the inventory database. Generated from data supplied to SEPA by Scottish Natural Heritage. It is important to note that if there are no wetlands identified on the inventory this does not mean that there are no wetlands in that area. The inventory has been completed using available digital data for wetlands that have been surveyed. It is very likely that there are wetlands in Scotland that have not been surveyed or where the survey data is currently not available in a digital format suitable for GIS.
