Scottish Natural Heritage - Data Services

Maintaining the background mapping for its many GIS applications used to be a challenging and time-consuming process for Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH). The organisation is now able to rely on Esri UK’s online data service, which both saves time and enhances the user experience.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • GIS professionals no longer have to spend hours at a time updating the background mapping for the organisation’s GIS applications.
  • For no additional cost, SNH now has access to a vast library of maps including large-scale maps that would otherwise have cost up to £5,000 a year.
  • Esri UK’s online data service delivers exceptional user performance and can scale up to meet unexpected peaks in traffic.


"Esri UK’s online data services enable us to focus on building our web sites and publishing our business data, without having to sweat over background mapping."

Mark Robson, GIS Manager, Scottish Natural Heritage
