NatureScot and Joint Nature Conservation Committee have collated data from various sources forming the Geodatabase of Marine features adjacent to Scotland (GeMS). This collation of species and habitat records provides information on the known recorded distribution of Scottish Priority Marine Features (PMFs), and Annex I habitats in the marine environment and is used as the core evidence base to support the Scottish Marine Protected Area (MPA) network.

This web map service is a redacted version of the latest GEMS, providing non-sensitive data on the species and habitats included in the collation.

Video clips from MPA surveys

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

This  layer combines video clips and analysis from seabed surveys carried out by Marine Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage and SEPA as part of the Scottish MPA Programme.

Seabed survey videos have been clipped and sample videos were uploaded to YouTube. The videos and survey results data have been combined into a point GIS layer depicting the location of the seabed surveys. The attribute information provides access to the results from the survey and the relevant video clips.

AIS Shipping Traffic - Average weekly density of fishing vessels 2012 - 2017 (time aware)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a maritime navigation safety communications system adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to provide vessel information, primarily for the purposes of maritime safety. AIS data are collected by various organisations and can be analysed to provide a source of spatial information about vessel movements within the geographical limits of the system. This layer shows the average weekly shipping density, of fishing vessels, for northern UK at 2km grid resolution, featuring multiple years for NMPi's time-aware functionality.

AIS datasets were sampled from the first seven days of each month, commencing with January, at monthly intervals. The total value for all 12 weeks was divided by 12 to determine the weekly average, therefore decimal values may occur for certain cells. The weekly average was also multiplied by 52 to provide the estimated annual average.
