This web map service (WMS) is the 1km percentage aggregate class version of the Land Cover Map 2015 (LCM2015) for Northern Ireland. It shows the percentage cover for each of 10 aggregated land cover classes for 1km x 1km pixels. The 10 aggregate classes are broad groupings of the 21 target classes, based on the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) Broad Habitats and which encompass the entire range of UK habitats. The aggregate classes group some of the more specialised classes into more general categories. For example, the five coastal classes in the target class are grouped into a single aggregate coastal class.
