    While Royal Mail (RM) allocate and maintain postcodes for the purposes of delivering mail, National Records of Scotland (NRS) create and maintain digital postcode geographies to support the production of high quality statistics. This dataset provides the grid reference (or centroid) for each live postcode (e.g. KY7 6DG) in Scotland. The grid reference is assigned by choosing either the building nearest to the centre of the most populous part of the postcode, or the grid reference from Gridlink®. Postcode grid references are used in point in polygon processes to allocate each postcode to a set of higher area geographies (e.g. Health Boards). Grid references are published twice a year as part of the Scottish Postcode Directory (SPD) which should be considered the definitive source for postcode geographies in Scotland. Note the published version of the SPD does not include Royal Mail information on Delivery Point Count (DPC), Delivery Point Count Non-Residential (DPCNR) or Household Count (HC). Those interested in this information should enquire with geographycustomerservices@nrscotland.gov.uk.

    While Royal Mail (RM) allocate and maintain postcodes for the purposes of delivering mail, National Records of Scotland (NRS) create and maintain digital postcode geographies to support the production of high quality statistics. This dataset provides the boundaries for each live postcode (e.g. KY7 6DG) in Scotland. NRS publish these boundaries twice a year as part of the Scottish Postcode Directory (SPD) which should be considered the definitive source for postcode geographies in Scotland. The SPD also details a range of higher geographies to which each postcode is assigned. Note the published version of the SPD does not include Royal Mail information on Delivery Point Count (DPC), Delivery Point Count Non-Residential (DPCNR) or Household Count (HC).

    The windfarm footprint map is intended to provide an overview only and we endeavour to keep the map as up to date as possible. However, users should note: •The map is updated regularly, but will never be 100% accurate. •There are several 'gaps' on the map where SNH are seeking appropriate mapping of proposals to add to the map. •The map should not be used to form the basis of detailed environmental assessment or regional planning work - it is an overview only. •The map shows the approximate physical footprint of the wind farm and is usually based on the site boundary as shown on the Environmental Statement. Where we don't have site boundary, a turbine 'envelope' is used instead, using the outer turbine locations. This will often include site access tracks, but generally excludes grid connections. •The map does not show the 'visibility' footprint of the windfarms, it shows the physical footprint only. •It is acknowledged that the word 'footprint' could be misleading - it does not represent the physical footprint of the turbines (or their foundations) themselves - it shows the area of land occupied by the windfarm and is intended to illustrate the relative scale of windfarm proposals. •The map only shows windfarms which are installed, consented, in planning or at scoping stage. It does not show proposals which are still confidential, or proposals which have been withdrawn or refused consent. •The map does not include small domestic wind turbines and generally only includes wind turbines of greater than 50m in height. •The map only includes proposals on which SNH are consulted, some small wind clusters or community scale proposals, which have not been reviewed by SNH may not appear. Note: this is not necessarily a comprehensive dataset of all wind farm schemes in the public domain and there may be some errors in the information supplied on this map. Windfarms which have been withdrawn from planning or refused consent do not appear on the map.

    While Royal Mail (RM) allocate and maintain postcodes for the purposes of delivering mail, National Records of Scotland (NRS) create and maintain digital postcode geographies to support the production of high quality statistics. This dataset provides the geometric grid references (or centroids) of postcode sectors which are the next hierarchical level above the individual postcode, represented by the outward code plus the first character of the inward code. For example, if the individual postcode is EH12 7TB, then the sector of that postcode is EH12 7. NRS publish these grid references twice a year as part of the Scottish Postcode Directory (SPD) which should be considered the definitive source for postcode geographies in Scotland.

    While Royal Mail (RM) allocate and maintain postcodes for the purposes of delivering mail, National Records of Scotland (NRS) create and maintain digital postcode geographies to support the production of high quality statistics. This dataset provides the geometric grid references (or centroids) of postcode districts which are the next hierarchical level above the postcode sector, represented by the outward code (first part of a postcode). For example, if the individual postcode is EH12 7TB, then the district of that postcode is EH12. NRS publish these grid references twice a year as part of the Scottish Postcode Directory (SPD) which should be considered the definitive source for postcode geographies in Scotland.
