We are looking for land cover data of the UK in raster form. Have tried downloading from 'Natural England' but this isn't the right format for ArcGIS Desktop. Needed for an undergraduate university project.

For those in UK education, the National Landcover Map 2007 (LCM2007) can be downloaded freely through EDINA Digimap. You will have to register to login and access the Environment Download section. After selecting the LCM2007, a download link will be sent to your University e-mail account. There is a choice of vector or raster datasets at 25 metre resolution.

LCM2015 has just been released (on April 2017), but its not yet available through EDINA.
