In our third blog of the Meet our partners series, we hear from Marine Scotland about the way their websites contribute the marine dimension to the Scotland's environment web collaboration.
Keep up to date with the latest developments and data you can find on Scotland’s environment web and find out more about what our partners are doing to address environmental issues.
The NBN Atlas Scotland is a free online tool that educates and informs people about Scotland’s natural world. It helps to improve biodiversity knowledge, opens up research possibilities and is changing the way environmental management is carried out, not only in Scotland, but across the UK.
Today is World Soil Day. So it seems fitting that we bring you a blog all about the Scotland's soils website, which is one of the websites that forms the 'part of Scotland's environment' network. To tell us more about the website, we asked Karen Dobbie, Principal Soil Scientist at SEPA and part of the team responsible for the Scotland’s soils website. This is what she had to say.
Scotland's environment web aims to be the trusted gateway to everything you want to know about Scotland's environment; bringing together environmental information and data so that it is easy to search, discover, view, analyse and interpret.
We want to help extend the reach and influence of the data and information published by our partners and help users get to the data they need, when they need it. One of the ways we're doing this is through the 'part of' family of websites. Here we explain more about what this means.
This is the last of our Mapvember blogs. We hope during the series we've provided you with a deeper insight into the effort that goes on behind the scenes to provide you with access to a wide range of environmental spatial data on our new map tool. We finish the month off with a profile of the publication of spatial data by our all-important partners – as without their data services, there would be no Scotland’s environment map.
