Air Quality Management Areas in Highland Council area.
One of four component layer of the Scottish wildness map. This layer seeks to capture ruggedness: 'landform which is rugged, or otherwise physically challenging' (Annex 1 SNH policy statement). The dataset is on a scale of 1-256 indicating relative levels of ruggedness. Consequently the data is best viewed at a national or regional scale. The methodology is adapted from the 2008 Wildness Study in the Cairngorms National Park.
LNRs are established in a variety of locations with very varied habitats and species. They must lie wholly within the area of jurisdiction of the local authority which declares them to be reserves. Prior to such declaration, the local authority must own or lease the site or obtain an agreement from the owner. LNRs are generally smaller than NNRs and closer to centres of population. They are frequently provided for the enjoyment and education of local people whose involvement in site management is encouraged.

Industrial sites listed in the Scottish Pollutant Release Inventory (SPRI) are required to report the total amounts of a substance that they emit to air or water during the period of a year.
The heat demand is an amalgamation of a number of different spatial datasets that have associated heat demand values. The map has been developed on the principle of applying data with increasing levels of certainty and overlaying and replacing individual property heat demand values. The heat demand layer is made up of a number of rasters which depict this demand in different ways. The heat demand rasters present a visualisation of the heat demand density by showing total demand within grid squares. These are shown at various grid sizes (50x50, 250x250, 500x500 and 1000x1000). The Scotland Heat Map is supported by a number of documents including users guidance which is available at http://www.scotland.gov.uk/heatmap 2.1 Methodology report 2.2 Manual 2.3 Metadata 2.4 Local knowledge validation & improvement process 2.5 Data management 2.6 Limitations and protections for data use and analysis 2.7 Scotland heat map – interactive and local web
One of four component layer of the Scottish map of relative wildness. This layer shows remoteness from the public road, rail and ferry network. The dataset is on a scale of 1-256 indicating relative levels of remoteness. Consequently the data is best viewed at a national or regional scale. The methodology is adapted from the 2008 Wildness Study in the Cairngorms National Park. Remoteness is taken as the relative time taken to walk from the nearest public road, railway stationor ferry landing (being the point of mechanised access), taking account of distance, relative slope, ground cover and barrier features such as open water and very steep ground.

Air Monitoring Sites in Scotland
Core paths, as the most important routes in the area, provide a basic framework of routes which meets community needs and minimises any potential conflict with land management operations. They provide opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding and other activities for people of all abilities. Core Paths include existing paths or new paths and the surface may vary from beaten earth paths, to surfaced paths and tracks.
