Land use is a characterization of land based on what can built on it and what the land can be used for. Example, the total of arrangements, activities & inputs that people undertake in a certain land cover type. Land use and zoning are not the same.

There are several different types of land use: Transport, Agricultural, Residential, & Commercial. Keep in mind, that although we may provide a definition of land use many buyers also have personal preferences and uses in mind. However, knowing the purpose of land allows the buyer to find the land that will work best for what they are planning.
