Land Use 2010 The 2010 Land Use (LU) maps cover all areas of Canada south of 600N at a spatial resolution of 30 metres. The LU classes follow the protocol of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and consist of: Forest, Water, Cropland, Grassland, Settlement and Otherland. The 2010 Land Use (LU) maps were developed in response to a need for explicit, high-accuracy, high-resolution land use data to meet AAFC’s commitments in international reporting, especially for the annual National Inventory Report (NIR) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Agri-Environmental program of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the FAOSTAT component of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). 2015-03-19 2018-08-16 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca Form DescriptorsLand UseAgricultureEnvironmentForestry Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcLand_Use/en/ISO_19131_Land_Use_1990__2000_2010_Data_Product_Specifications.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcLand_Use/fr/Utilisation_des_terres_en_1990_%202000_%202010_ISO19131.pdf Pre-packaged GeoTIF files (No linguistic component)GeoTIF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/lcv/aafcLand_Use/tif/2010/ Land Use 2010WMS https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/imageservices/landuse_2010/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png Land Use 2010WMS https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/servicesimage/utilisation_des_terres_2010/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png AgriMap (English)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/agrimap Land Use 1990, 2000, 2010 (English)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/landu Land Use 1990, 2000, 2010(French)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/uterre AgriMap (French)HTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/agricarte Land Use 2010ESRI REST https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/landuse_2010/ImageServer Land Use 2010ESRI REST https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesimage/utilisation_des_terres_2010/ImageServer
