    The following UKCEH datasets will be made available to some registered users on the Defra Data Services Platform:

    Products 

    Description 

    LCM1990 vector GB 

    Not available on DSP yet.

    This updated LCM applied the methods developed for LCM2015 to satellite data for 1990. It uses the same Broad Habitat-based classes as LCM 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019, and uses the spatial framework for LCM2007 onwards. 

    LCM2000 vector GB 

    Not available on DSP yet.

    The level 2 vector (standard) data are provided as polygons (land parcels) with each parcel having a list of attributes attached. These include its size, source images, Broad Habitat, Target Class, spectral variant and class probabilities. 

    LCM2007 vector GB

    Not available on DSP yet.

    The vector data are provided as polygons (land parcels) with each parcel having a list of attributes attached. These include its size, source images, Broad Habitat, Target Class, spectral variant and class probabilities. 

    LCM2015 vector GB   

    Not available on DSP yet.

    The vector data are provided as polygons (land parcels) with each parcel having a list of attributes attached. These include its size, source images, Broad Habitat, Target Class, spectral variant and class probabilities. 

    LCM2017 (land parcels, GB) 

    Not available on DSP yet.

    The data are provided as polygons (land parcels) with each parcel having a list of attributes attached. These include the dominant UKCEH Land Cover Class given as an integer value, and a range of pixel statistics to help to assess classification confidence and accuracy. 

    LCM2018 (land parcels, GB)

    Not available on DSP yet. 

    The data are provided as polygons (land parcels) with each parcel having a list of attributes attached. These include the dominant UKCEH Land Cover Class given as an integer value, and a range of pixel statistics to help to assess classification confidence and accuracy. 

    LCM2019 (land parcels, GB) 

    The data are provided as polygons (land parcels) with each parcel having a list of attributes attached. These include the dominant UKCEH Land Cover Class given as an integer value, and a range of pixel statistics to help to assess classification confidence and accuracy.
