INSPIRE (Scotland) statement


The INSPIRE (Scotland) document sets out the University of the Highlands and Islands' interpretation of its “public task” for the purposes of the INSPIRE (Scotland) Regulations 2009.  The INSPIRE (Scotland) Regulations 2009 apply to the primary copy of geospatial datasets relating to certain categories of information which are produced, received, managed or updated by a “Scottish public authority” within the scope of its “public tasks”.  This discussion of the University of the Highlands and Islands “public task” is strictly limited to this specialist context and is not transferable to other spheres.
