Land Cover Map 2015 (1km dominant aggregate class) Web Map Service

This web map service (WMS) is the 1km raster, dominant aggregate class version of the Land Cover Map 2015 (LCM2015) for Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It shows the aggregate habitat class with the highest percentage cover in each 1km x 1km pixel. 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.
