Point dataset showing the position of winding holes and other recommended turning points along the navigational network. Captured from OS MasterMap.
This dataset represents passenger and vehicle ferry ports in Scotland. These are the start and end terminals for the Scottish Ferry Routes dataset. It was initially created for use within the development of the Scottish Government's Urban Rural Classification. Ports which service both subsidised and private active ferry routes are included. Ferry ports and attributes are based upon route information obtained from Traveline data aggregated from operators (e.g. Caledonian MacBrayne, NorthLink Ferries, etc.).
This dataset shows priority 1 road gritting routes, priority 1 pavement gritting routes and local priority pavement gritting routes.
Point data set depicting all of the bridges on the Scottish Canal Network. Including accommodation, public road, foot, swing, pipe/cable and railway bridges and bridge abutments.
Most councils will keep a record of their car parks, bays and zones. Therefore we have tried to compile these into consistent national layers. Currently, we publish three layers: - Car Parks - a polygon layer - Parking Bays - a polygon layer - Parking Zones - a polygon layer Any supplied point records have been buffered (bays by 2m, car parks by 10m) to create a representative area, allowing them to be incorporated in the national dataset
Line dataset representing the Scottish canal centre line split into 1km sections.
In November 2004, Audit Scotland published a document entitled ‘Maintaining Scotland’s Roads’, effectively introducing a requirement on local authorities in Scotland to produce a Roads Asset Management Plan (RAMP). Following this publication, The Society of Chief Officers for Transportation in Scotland (SCOTS) produced a common asset management framework through which all local authorities could develop their own RAMP. Street assets/furniture are a key part of the RAMP and as such a requirement exists for a national dataset of information. This can include (although is not limited to) features such as bollards, road signs, barriers, parking bays, bus shelters, cattle grids, gates, street lighting columns, benches/seats, information boards, dog/litter/grit bins, cycle stands, ticket machines etc. etc. We are currently only including furniture types that have been provided by more than one council. These are: Grit Bins Street Lights Traffic Calming Traffic Signals Litter Bins Cattle Grids Weather Stations Dog Litter Bins Benches Bollards Picnic Tables Memorials Cycle parking We understand that some local authorities are loading this data into the VAULT system. We will work with the team managing that system to ensure that there is one definitive list in the future.
Car parking zones in Perth city centre. Parking in Perth City is divided into three zones. Different pricing and waiting periods apply depending on the zone.
Every local authority and National Park authority (access authorities) in Scotland is required to draw up a plan for a system of paths (core paths) sufficient for the purpose of giving the public reasonable access throughout their area. Core paths are paths, waterways or any other means of crossing land to facilitate, promote and manage the exercise of access rights under the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, and are identified as such in access authority core paths plan. There are, intentionally, no set physical standards for core paths. This means that core paths can physically be anything from a faint line across a field to a fully constructed path, track or pavement. The National Access Forum, Scottish Natural Heritage and Scottish Government are encouraging information to be surveyed and made publicly available, in a nationally-standardised form, so that the public will know what physical type of route they can expect. Government guidance is making core paths the priority for rolling out this national standardised grading system information, which is set out at http://www.pathsforall.org.uk/pfa/creating-paths/path-grading-system.html
Controlled Parking Zones represent areas of parking restriction for residential use. Also included in this dataset are priority parking areas. Priority parking places only operate for 90 minutes each day which will stop commuters and non residents from parking in the permit holders places.
