Land use information

Land use information shows how we use the landscape, whether that is for food production, forestry, nature conservation, water storage or urban development.  It provides the location, extent and ability to track change in land use over time. 

The below images show land use with the Australian Land Use and Management Classification (ALUMC) code and description.
