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).
Point dataset with the locations of Recycling Centre’s in Aberdeen City Council local authority area. Attribute information includes site name, road name, locality and postcode.
The Perth and Kinross Employment Land Audit is prepared annually to provide up to date and accurate information on the supply and availability of employment land for business and industrial use within the Perth and Kinross Council area. This audit has been prepared from information provided in the Local Development Plan and through the monitoring of planning application approvals.
Grit Bin Locations (Moray)
Collation of species polygon records contributing to the Geodatabase of Marine features adjacent to Scotland (GeMS). Records are attributed as to their qualification as protected features of protected areas within the Scottish MPA network. Where appropriate typical record details will include: status as Scottish Priority Marine Features or Annex II Species, scientific name, abundance details, date, date range, year, status, accuracy, determiner and details of where the records are sourced from and intellectual property ownership. Polygon area values in the HECTARES field are calculated using ETRS89-LAEA (EPSG:3035) using the standard centre of projection at 10° E, 52° N.
Scotland’s woodlands and forests are a vital national resource and play an important role in rural development and sustainable land use. As well as helping to reduce the impacts of climate change and providing timber for industry, our forests enhance and protect the environment and provide opportunities for public enjoyment. The Forestry Grant Scheme (FGS) will support: - the creation of new woodlands, contributing towards the Scottish Government target of over 10,000 hectares of new woodlands per year - the sustainable management of existing woodlands WOODLAND CREATION - CLAIMS ============================== The aim of this category is to support the creation of new woodland that will bring economic, environmental and social benefits. These benefits include: - meeting our target to increase woodland cover by an extra 100,000 hectares between 2012 and 2022 - helping mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration - restoration of 'lost' habitats through developing forest habitat networks - supporting a sustainable forest industry by providing a reliable timber supply - protecting soil and water - providing community benefits through public access - enhancing urban areas and improving landscapes - supporting rural development through local businesses and farm diversification This dataset identifies areas where tree planting has taken place under the following FGS woodland creation options: - Conifer - Diverse Conifer - Broadleaves - Native Scots Pine - Native Upland Birch - Native Broadleaves - Native Low-density Broadleaves - Small or Farm Woodlands - Native Broadleaves in Northern and Western Isles The polygons in this dataset identify the spatial location of tree species grant aided under FGS and the planting year. All areas of grant aided open ground (OG) and non-grant aided other land (OL) are excluded from this dataset.
The objective of the designation is to protect and enhance the Moray coast for its landscape, nature conservation, recreation and tourism benefits. The undeveloped coastline is protected through identification of a Coastal Protection Zone (CPZ) within which only certain types of development will be acceptable.
Fife has over 6,200 Listed Buildings, which is close to 10% of Scotland’s total entries on the statutory list. Listed Buildings are buildings or other structures of special architectural or historic interest compiled by Historic Scotland. They are published as an XY point theme. This dataset contains polygon features derived form OS building footprint using the point features.
The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) 2012 is the Scottish Government’s official tool for identifying concentrations of deprivation in Scotland. SIMD12 is the Scottish Government’s fourth edition since 2004. The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) combines seven different domains (aspects) of deprivation: income; employment; health; education, skills and training; geographic access to services; crime; and housing. These domains are measured using a number of indicators to form ranks for each domain. Data zones are ranked from 1 being most deprived to 6,505 being least deprived. Each of the seven domain ranks are then combined to form the overall SIMD. This provides a measure of relative deprivation at data zone level, so it tells you that one data zone is relatively more deprived than another but not how much more deprived.
This dataset is a product of the Deeds Management System. Estates, Forest Planning, Mapping & GeoData and ESRI (UK) Ltd have developed the Deed Management Extension.
