3D Visual Intelligence: UKLand

UKLand - National Land Use Database

UKLand is a spatial database created and maintained by 3D Visual Intelligence, detailing land use data across the whole of the United Kingdom. This national land use database is designed to help users gain an understanding of an area, whether that is whole regions or a smaller more specific area. UKLand offers a comprehensive and consistent view of the use of the land across the UK. 

The database, comprising 27 classes, is used for regional analysis and planning by Government, Planners, Developers, and Property companies to improve planning and decision making. If you are searching for specific categories of land, for example, retail parks, or large areas of industrial land away from urban areas, UKLand can help.

A version of the database is also used to plan and develop wireless radio networks for Telecom companies and mobile network operators. Delivered as a Telecoms Clutter database, the data can be used within standard radio planning and optimisation software.
