Marine Scotland Information is a web portal that provides access to descriptions and information about the Scottish marine environment while providing links to datasets and map resources that are made available by Marine Scotland and Partners.
On the portal, content is grouped into 3 types, and you can use the next tabs to explore the content:
You can of course search across all 3 types of content.
Information on this site is organised by themes. You can select these themes to explore more information on available maps, data and topics.
Maps are either interactive web maps available through National Marine Plan interactive (NMPi), or downloadable resources for further analysis in GIS tools. We have organised maps by the type of resource. A list of all maps available on NMPi can be seen in the NMPi section.
Data sources are either downloadable files or links to more information on other websites. We include all datasets published on marinedata.scotland.gov.uk as well as numerous other links to partners, documents, and tables.
Please note, we are currently in the process of moving marine licence and application information from an older site to Marine Scotland Information. If you cannot find the details you are looking for here, it may still be on the old site. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this period.
