GIS based habitat polygons representing coastal vegetated shingle for Scotland. The dataset is derived from existing sources, modified through aerial photographic interpretation and field survey. This layer is intended to be the final pass since subsequent work was undertakento further validate the original CVS GIS layer produced by the GeoData Institute to improve accuracy where no secondary data were available. Field validation was carried out in Scotland in September and October 2011 and August to November 2012 by Roland Randall, Ian Strachan, Jonathan Cox, Alan Booth, Frazer Milne and S. Smith (CES) and Clive Bealey. Contains Ordnance Survey data © Crown copyright and database right (2016) Ian Strachan, Alan Booth and CES, Jon Cox and Roland Randall collected the data in the field. All post processing was carried out inhouse at the GeoData Institute by Dan Hall Ballester, Dan Ellis, Andy Murdock and Gemma Gubbins Please see the metadata for Coastal Vegetated Shingle Survey of Scotland for more details about this data and the full report.
