Spatial Information Programme - co-ordinating spatial data management across Scotland's local authorities

Spatial Information Service

The Spatial Information Service (SIS) comprises a team of technical and specialist geospatial professionals who are responsible for developing and maintaining several spatial data services on behalf of Scottish local government. The current services they manage are:



SIS works directly for Scottish local government and collaborates closely with strategic partners to ensure that improved spatial information management increases value to data owners and the wider Scottish community. It keeps the local government community up to date on Scottish, UK and EU legislation, regulation and data specifications, including INSPIRE, and supports Scottish local government to achieve compliance.


SIS will centralise the efforts associated with the improvement of spatial information management across local government, resulting in long term efficiency gains and cost savings. They will place an emphasis on using open source software and technology, as specified by various European and UK directives and initiatives, which will keep their running costs as low as possible.
