Two new datasets - cycle networks and culverts - have been published on Spatial Hub, the source of Scottish local government spatial data.
The datasets were added in July 2018 along with ‘as necessary’ amendments to important legislative datasets (like Air Quality Management Areas and Conservation Areas) and yearly dataset updates (like Council Asset Registers and Community Council boundaries).
Any public-sector body now has access to these national datasets via the One Scotland Mapping Agreement.
The Spatial Hub has now been running quarterly data publication windows for over a year.
The next publication window is in October 2018, when datasets of Local Development Plan data, septic tanks, private water supplies and safety features will be published.
