Blog from Habitat Map of Scotland

Wed, 2017-12-20 00:00
Blog from Habitat Map of Scotland (HabMoS) team: What habitat you would like for Christmas. Maybe Caledonian forest, for a peaceful walk through the trees, or would you like some sand dunes? Perhaps you would choose Machair, a wind-swept saltmarsh or a good bit of blanket bog? We asked the Habitat Map of Scotland project board members to tell us what habitat they would like to unwrap at Christmas. Is your favourite here?

Blog in the 'part of Scotland's environment' series: The NBN Atlas Scotland is a free online tool that educates and informs people about Scotland’s natural world. It helps to improve biodiversity knowledge, opens up research possibilities and is changing the way environmental management is carried out, not only in Scotland, but across the UK.

Today is World Soil Day. So it seems fitting that we bring you a blog all about the Scotland's soils website, which is one of the websites that forms the 'part of Scotland's environment' network. To tell us more about the website, we asked Karen Dobbie, Principal Soil Scientist at SEPA and part of the team responsible for the Scotland’s soils website. This is what she had to say.

The last of our Mapvember blogs, where we've been providing a deeper insight into the effort that goes on behind the scenes to provide you with access to a wide range of environmental spatial data on our new map tool. In this post we share with you a profile of the publication of spatial data by our all-important partners – as without their data services, there would be no Scotland’s environment map.

Mapvember blog: As users, we interact with maps and spatial data on daily basis. But do we give much thought to how these applications are developed? How does all of this data reach the map applications that we use? And who builds them? During Mapvember we catch-up with members of the SEPA team responsible for spatial data and development of the Scotland’s environment map, to find out more about what they do and get to know the people behind the map.
