Land Cover Map 1990 (LCMGB)

The Land Cover Map of Great Britain (1990) is a digital dataset, providing classification of land cover types into 25 classes, at a 25m (or greater) resolution. The map was produced using supervised maximum likelihood classifications of Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper data. The map, based on a 25m grid, comprises 25 classes, including sea and inland waters, bare, suburban and urban areas, arable farmland, pastures and meadows, rough grass, grass heaths and moors, bracken, dwarf shrub heaths and moorland, scrub, deciduous and evergreen woodland, and upland and lowland bogs. It can be used to plan, manage or monitor agriculture, ecology, conservation, forestry, environmental assessment, water supplies, urban spread, transport, telecommunications, recreation and mineral extraction.
