2014 Basking shark SPLASH tag 137646 - surface positions (SNH WMS)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

The Priority Marine Feature (PMF) list contains 81 habitats and species considered to be of conservation importance in Scotland's seas. It includes many features which are characteristic of the Scottish marine environment, ranging from flame shell beds in coastal waters, to cold-water coral reefs of the deeper seas, and mobile species such as minke whale and basking shark.

Point data for Basking sharks from SPLASH tag 137646 deployed as part of the University of Exeter / Scottish Natural Heritage Basking shark satellite tagging project in 2014. SPLASH transmitting tags are data-archiving tags that transmit to the Argos system. They are used when both horizontal movement and additional information are required. The entire raw archived data set can be recovered if the tag is physically retrieved. Positional accuracy: Fastloc-GPS (100m or better). Date and timestamp are also recorded.

Line data joining consecutive surface positions of Basking sharks from SPLASH tag 137646 deployed as part of the University of Exeter / Scottish Natural Heritage Basking shark satellite tagging project in 2014. Note these lines do not indicate the actual tracks taken by Basking sharks between surface positions; they simply join the surface positions.

Limits and Boundaries - Community Council Boundaries (Improvement Service WMS)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

Community councils are required to be established by local authorities. They are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland. They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent. Community councils are statutory consultees under various processes, such as for planning applications.

There are many instances where polygons do not tessellate or snap to local authority boundaries. The Spatial Hub processing can correct for some minor gap errors (<5m) but not larger ones. Such gaps in the dataset mean that it cannot potentially be used for some kinds of spatial analysis e.g. point in polygon, because some point locations may fall within the gaps. These gaps either require amendment at source or approval for the IS to change.
