Abstract
This view service provides spatial data relating to Scottish wetlands. This data set has been developed by assimilating spatial data from Scottish Natural Heritage. The whole country has not yet been surveyed and as a result the data set only displays known wetlands. The wetland inventory database comprises a number of fields that include the main WFD95 wetland type, the original habitat survey information and whether the wetland polygon is within a statutory designated site. The wetland typology (WFD95) is used as the main identifying field for each polygon in the inventory database. Generated from data supplied to SEPA by Scottish Natural Heritage. It is important to note that if there are no wetlands identified on the inventory this does not mean that there are no wetlands in that area. The inventory has been completed using available digital data for wetlands that have been surveyed. It is very likely that there are wetlands in Scotland that have not been surveyed or where the survey data is currently not available in a digital format suitable for GIS.
