Farmland use in the Netherlands (2014)

 Datasets

Once in a while you run across a dataset that you kind of forgot about. I used an agricultural dataset during my bachelor year for the course Agricultural Geography. I just recently stumbled across a newer version of this dataset. In dutch it is called Agrarisch Areaal NederlandThis contains all the parcels in the Netherlands that are designated with the function agriculture. These parcels will be designated as having a certain function (grassland, cropland, fallow land, nature or other). It is interesting to find patterns across the Netherlands.

More detail

During the making of this map I found a new dataset which actually looks at each individual parcel and which specific use it has, which crop was grown there. The list of of possible functions is massive. Next week I will be blogging about this dataset, as it contains a lot more detail. The dataset is called BRP Gewaspercelen.
