Land Use describes the functional use of land, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_use
It can be differentiated from Land Cover, that describes the elements and materials found at the surface of land.

Land Use of each Land Unit is typically classified into a limited set of Land Use Types.


An example of a Land Cover Classification can be found in the European Corine Land Cover database.
