A new website to improve open access to research data on Scotland’s natural assets

"The aim of NAR-DP is to create an accessible and easy to use online resource for a wide range of people, from organisations to members of the public"

Scientists based at the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen have developed a brand-new, web-based portal to improve access to spatial data on Scotland’s natural assets, including soils, land, biodiversity and cultural heritage.

The new Natural Asset Register Data Portal, or NAR-DP for short, facilitates access to open-access datasets created through the Scottish Government’s Strategic Research Programme that otherwise wouldn’t be readily available to stakeholders, other researchers or the wider public.
