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.
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.
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.

This dataset represent the Roads in Scotland for which the Scottish Ministers are the Trunk Road Authority
Part 1, Section 17 of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act requires Local Authorities to provide a system of core paths that are sufficient for the purpose of giving the public reasonable access throughout their area. This data set contains information on the Dundee Core Paths as agreed by the City Council in 2009.
