πŸ†•Habitat Coverage Reference

A cross-reference table mapping the OS land cover classification to habitat classification schemes; European Nature Information System (EUNIS) and UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) Broad Habitats; and providing the percentage of each land cover classification within a topographic area, except Water features.

See OS NGD Land cover enhancements for additional information about this table.
