The Forestry Commission Scotland

A new Land Information Search service has been launched in Scotland that helps landowners improve their management of the natural environment. Developed through the close collaboration of three public sector organisations, the online tool is expected to contribute to sustained cost savings through the closer collaboration of multiple government departments.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • Landowners can save time and complete more successful bids for woodland management grants.
  • Government organisations can process funding applications more efficiently.
  • The tool uses ArcGIS web services to stream up-to-date data directly from a variety of organisations.


“The new Land Information Search service delivers considerable benefits for landowners and managers, making it far easier for them to maintain Scotland’s beautiful and invaluable rural environment."

Howard Davies, Geo-Information Services Delivery Manager, Forestry Commission Scotland
