The interactive Scotland heat map can be used by business, developers, housing associations, and communities to find out about the heat demand and supply opportunities.
The heat demand data from the interactive Scotland heat map can be downloaded using our INSPIRE download service.
We have provided the following attached guidance documents to support the use of the map:
- framework documentation relating to the agreement between the Scottish Government and local authorities and other public sector organisations to share the data.
- user guides showing how the map was created and how it can be used and updated
- quick guides showing how to use the map as well as a data dictionary
- a data sharing request form that can be used to submit requests for us to share heat map data. This is for individuals and organisations that are not covered by the framework agreement
Great care has been taken to ensure the Scotland heat map is as accurate as possible. However, with such a large data set, errors will occur. By using Scotland heat map interactive you accept the data as is. The Scottish Government or any data provider is not liable for costs arising from using this data.
