Im after a general Land Use dataset for England.

I know there is Land Use 2000 from CEH but the license costs are not within my clients budget.

Are there any free datasets, perhaps similar to Open Street Map?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.

I used in the past the USGS Global Land Cover Characterization. I don't know if it's the most up-to-date land cover file, but for what I needed, it was perfect.

The resolution is 1 km and you can download the file by continent or for the world.

Hope it helps!

I get most of my Land use data here in the states from state or federal DEP (environmental protection) this site might be of help to you though http://www.defra.gov...d/alltables.htm
