Abstract
The Listed Building Dataset comprises the statutory addresses and supplementary information for listed buildings in Scotland. Listing is the recognition through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997 that a building or structure is of ‘special’ interest. Historic Environment Scotland lists buildings on behalf of Scottish Ministers.

Statement
In 2003-4 a programme of geo-referencing listed buildings in Scotland was undertaken in conjunction with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS). This project linked the known RCAHMS database record coordinates to that of a listed building entry. In addition, where a listed building comprised multiple features, as part of a single listing, these were also captured as entity points. Therefore, a single listing may be represented by one or more points within the dataset. The entity and attribute information is derived from Historic Environment Scotland's Oracle database. <DES_REF> is a unique identifier and refers to the statutory address <ADDRESS>. <ENTITY_REF> refers to the entity, or entities, which may form part of a single listing. Boundary information has been derived from Ordnance Survey background mapping. These have been digitized based on relevant mapping at the time of addition, amendment or removal from the list, using OS Mastermap at scales 1:2500 and 1:1250. Boundaries are multipolygon and relate to the single listing entry, including all associated entities.
