This layer shows the locations of dredge spoil deposit sites that are designated as disused (not used for at least 5 years) or closed (not used for at least 10 years or specifically closed). The spoil is usually as a result of navigational dredging (deepening of navigation channels) on the approaches to ports and harbours.

A mask layer depicting the exclusive economic zone limits adjacent to Scotland, which reflects the extent of the Scottish zone defined in the Scotland Act 1998.
This layer shows population estimate by locality. The estimate is derived from the report "Mid-2016 Population Estimates for Settlements and Localities in Scotland" by National Records of Scotland (NRS). Localities correspond to the more recognisable towns and cities of Scotland which can be found within settlements. They also have a minimum rounded population of 500 people or more. The locality data sets are updated every 2 years.
