Scotland has been innovative in making heritage data available online. The national record Canmore is believed to have been one of the world’s first online monuments records and PastMap is a searchable online GIS portal which brings together over 20 heritage datasets.

However, is simply being ‘online’ enough to make a nation’s heritage data truly available? In the case of Scotland, while it is simple to drill down to individual monuments, it is harder to elucidate general patterns, and familiarity with domestic geographies is an advantage when searching.
