Abstract
Collation of species polygon records contributing to the Geodatabase of Marine features adjacent to Scotland (GeMS). Records are attributed as to their qualification as protected features of protected areas within the Scottish MPA network. Where appropriate typical record details will include: status as Scottish Priority Marine Features or Annex II Species, scientific name, abundance details, date, date range, year, status, accuracy, determiner and details of where the records are sourced from and intellectual property ownership. Polygon area values in the HECTARES field are calculated using ETRS89-LAEA (EPSG:3035) using the standard centre of projection at 10° E, 52° N.

Use limitation
Current (04/04/2019) SNH policy indicates that 3rd Party owned individual records may only be released proactively when consented by data owners; details of permissions to mobilise for view download and re-use are documented against individual records in the CONSENT field. Likewise records of Native oyster or Native oyster habitat are considered Sensitive under SNH policy and are not to be released at full resolution; such records are tagged as "Sensitive" in the CONSENT field.

dataset
Statement
This feature class contains species polygon records that have been iteratively added on and since the initial creation of the dataset. Records are sourced from multiple data owners, and provided for addition to the dataset by either Scottish Natural Heritage or Joint Nature Conservation Committee. Intellectual Property Ownership of individual records is varied. Records were originally collected for a variety of purposes and record collection was done through a variety of methodologies. No records were originally collected with the specific purpose of inclusion within this collation; the dataset accepts records relevant to Priority Marine Features, MPA Search Features and Annex I habitat records. Records have had a standardised data structure applied, and as such may not include all the attributes available within their original source. Published Version 6: Iteration 20 [07/09/2018] to support PMF review consultation, also contains some data to support forthcoming Phase II Fisheries Management, and some data to support consultation on remaining Nature Conservation MPA proposals Unpublished: Iteration 19 [31/01/2018] Published Version5: Iteration 18 [24/01/2017] Unpublished: Iteration 17 [22/06/2015] Unpublished: Iteration 16 [01/05/2015] Published Version 4: Iteration 15 [24/02/2015] additions and changes to reflect data confidence assessments used at designation for JNCC led sites Unpublished: Iteration 14 [October 2014] additions and changes to reflect data confidence assessments used at designation for SNH led sites Published Version 3: Iteration 13 [03/07/2014] published immediately prior to MPA independent external review Unpublished: Iteration 12 [undated] Unpublished: Iteration11 [30/01/2014] supplied as interim release to Marine Scotland Published Version 2: Iteration 10 [31/05/2012] published to MPA stakeholder consultation process Published Version 1: Iteration 9 [17/06/2011] published to MPA stakeholder consultation process Unpublished: Iteration 8 [2011] Unpublished: Iteration 7 [2011] Unpublished: Iteration 6 [2011] Unpublished: Iteration 5 [2011] Unpublished: Iteration 4 [2011] Unpublished: Iteration 3 [2011] Unpublished: Iteration 2 [2011] Unpublished: Iteration 1 [2011]
