Scotland’s Coastal Rubbish Aerial Photography (SCRAPbook) uses aerial photography collected by light aircraft to identify visible macro litter on the coast. During 2018 and 2019 images were collected from all accessible areas of the Scottish mainland coast, producing a ‘snapshot’ of macro litter distribution. A coordinated team of citizen scientists assessed the images for data intensity and litter types and a spatial data set generated to map these locations. Litter was assessed on an intensity scale from 0 – 5.

This layer displays a line dataset depicting the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) shoreline classification of the Scottish coastline for oil spill contingency planning. The shoreline type is zoom restricted to about 1:50,000. The Scottish coastline has been classified into five categories:
- Rock and man-made
- Sand, gravel and rock armour
- Exposed tidal flats
- Sheltered rock, man-made or rip rap (rock armour)
- Sheltered tidal flats or salt marshes
The data has been adapted from the shoreline classification in table 3.2 of the BP Final Report "Environmental and Socio-economic Sensitivity Mapping for Oil Spill Preparedness and Response (OSPR)", modified to include the simple ESI code from the 2011 report on "Sensitivity mapping for oil spill response" published by International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association (IPIECA), International Maritime Organization (IMO) and International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IGP)
