For the academic project I am working on, I would need to have the Great Britain landuse data.So far I looked for them in several websites but I did not find anything that was for free and with a good quality (I found some data in osm-x-tractor.org but they are very incomplete).

Is there a good website where I can find these information for free?

Eventually, is there any easy method to extract this large amount of information from OpenStreetMap or any other similar website by myself?

  • Have you seen anything from the links posted in this question? Where to get Land Use data for the UK? – Joseph May 12 '16 at 13:43
  • Yeah from that other post the CORINE data is free. OS MasterMap is free through EDINA but it is too detailed to be used at a GB level. – HeikkiVesanto May 12 '16 at 14:57
  • So you want data about landuse like woods, meadows, beaches, industrial, residential, agricultural etc? For whole GB? – stephan75 May 12 '16 at 16:01
  • OS Mastermap does not yet have anything close to what would be considered to be detailed land use, although the OS have talked about introducing it. – John Powell May 12 '16 at 17:59
