Scottish Natural Heritage

Using Esri’s ArcGIS platform, Scottish Natural Heritage developed a web-mapping service to deliver information to the general public about wildlife, habitats and landscapes in Scotland. The online facility now receives over 3,000 visitors a month, providing a vital amenity for people living, working, walking and holidaying in Scotland.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • ArcGIS helps SNH to make natural heritage information far more accessible to a wider range of people.
  • Employees save time (over a day per enquiry in some cases) as citizens can self-serve online.
  • The web map helps to increase awareness of the role of SNH and the value it provides for the people of Scotland.


"GIS enables us to work more efficiently and frees up people’s time to focus on the quality aspect of information management."

Ian McKirdy, Head of Information Management
