The demand for use of the marine environment and coastal areas has never been greater. With ambitious targets for the development of marine renewable energy, marine protected areas and interactive marine activities, marine planning has risen to the top of the policy agenda. As the Scottish Government progresses national and regional marine planning under the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010, accessing information about how Scotlandís marine space is used is imperative. This is particularly important for coastal stakeholders who operate at regional or local scales where data are poorly spatially resolved.
