Abstract
Many countries around the world have begun to adopt zonation systems as a strategic framework to guide their approach to the conservation, enhancement, understanding and use of the natural heritage. The natural heritage zonation approach adopted by SNH is intended to provide a logical framework, reflecting the diversity of Scotland's natural heritage, within which SNH can clearly and simply plan and execute its work. The zones are not, therefore, intended as a classification of the natural heritage but, rather as an operational tool which is founded in the natural heritage.

dataset
Statement
The boundaries of the zones are primarily based upon three SNH geographic datasets: Biogeographic Zones, Landscape Character Assessment boundaries and the existing SSSI boundaries. The relevant boundary sections were copied directly from these datasets. The sources used in each section of an NHF boundary are recorded in nhz_lin.shp.
