Landmap Visual Sensory

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 visual and sensory landscape classification for Wales in the form of polygons (Aspect Areas) with large amounts of associated textual information, including General, Description, Evaluation, Recommendations, Tolerance to Change, Area Boundary, Evaluation and Assessment. This dataset maps the landscape as perceived through our senses based on the physical attributes of landform and land cover. The perceived characteristics of the landscape are primarily determined visually, but the senses of hearing, smell and touch are also considered.

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.
