Dataset extent

This dataset shows the potential and high confidence mapped extents of Annex I habitat 'Sandbank' within the boundaries of the UK continental shelf. 'Sandbank' here refers to the habitat (1110) listed under Annex I of EC Directive 92/43/EEC of 21 May 1992 on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora – commonly known as the Habitats Directive.
This dataset is presented in its most detailed form so you can fully interrogate the dataset and all its underlying attributes representing the underlying logic and data sources resulting in areas of 'Potential' or 'High' confidence Annex I Sandbanks.
Where areas of Sandbank contain differing underlying attributes, descriptor values or data sources, a single Annex I feature may be represented by multiple polygons. These subdivisions are irrelevant in terms of the overall extent of the feature.
