Land map is a Wales-wide landscape assessment that is organised by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) in partnership with the Welsh local authorities.

LANDMAP includes five, nationally consistent, quality assured spatial datasets:

  • Geological Landscape
  • Landscape Habitats
  • Visual and Sensory
  • Historic Landscape
  • Cultural Landscape
