Landmap Historic Landscape

Natural Resources Wales

LandMap is a unique national information system, allowing information about landscape in Wales to be collected and organised into a nationally consistent dataset. The LANDMAP database includes both objective and subjective information and is designed to enable landscape quality to be taken into account in decision making. Geographic dataset showing historical landscape classification for Wales in the form of polygons (Aspect Areas) with large amounts of associated textual information, including General, Description, Evaluation, Recommendations, Area Boundary, Evaluation and Bibliography. This dataset focuses on archaeological and historical sites and how they relate to each other and to the surrounding landscape. The features mapped include those resulting from past human activity and structurally prominent patterns and features that contribute to the historic character of the present landscape. Information is gathered by LandMap in order to inform sustainable decision making and to enable landscape to be taken into account during decision making processes. Historic Landscape data can be used to assess the speed, direction and effect of change and to provide an understanding of how the landscape has evolved. A LandMap Quality Assurance Procedure is in place to ensure that LandMap Information meets an agreed standard of good practice and that data is accurate and consistent across Wales.

Though the download caches are refreshed periodically and should be in sync with the web service, if a guarantee the live data is being consumed is needed the WFS or WMS endpoint should be used.
