nCube definition

These data were published by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister on February 28th, 2005. They are limited to categories which can be identified from conventional Ordnance Survey mapping, so a very wide range of land uses are included in 'Greenspace', including all agricultural land uses and all types of open space.
