Marine Scotland Information, a new website from Marine Scotland launched today.
This web portal provides access to important contextual information for the data and resources Marine Scotland makes available online. With a particular focus on mapping and our scientific data, this site combines information from the National Marine Plan interactive (NMPi) online web mapping resource, the Marine Scotland data portal and the larger geospatial data previously hosted on Marine Scotland interactive.
Marine Scotland Information presents a central location to search and browse though Marine Scotland data and provides direct access to view the relevant maps, download fully referenced datasets and read more information about a given topic.
Content on Marine Scotland Information is grouped into 3 types:
- Information: Text and background, organised into themes that are aligned with the Scottish Government vision for managing Scotland's Seas.
- Maps: Spatial data presented as interactive or downloadable map sources.
- Data: Datasets, statistics, downloadable documents, and links to other websites.
These categories can be accessed through the navigation menu and the tabs on the homepage
