Land map is a Wales-wide landscape assessment that is organised by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) in partnership with the Welsh local authorities.
LANDMAP is an all-Wales landscape resource where landscape characteristics, qualities and influences on the landscape are recorded and evaluated.
It’s a tool to help sustainable decision-making and natural resource planning at a range of levels from local to national whilst ensuring transparency in decision-making.
LANDMAP includes five, nationally consistent, quality assured spatial datasets:
- Geological Landscape
- Landscape Habitats
- Visual and Sensory
- Historic Landscape
- Cultural Landscape
