Land Use

Land use involves the management and modification of natural environment or wilderness into built environment such as settlements and semi-natural habitats such as arable fields, pastures, and managed woods. Land use by humans has a long history, first emerging more than 10 thousand years ago. It also has been defined as "the total of arrangements, activities, and inputs that people undertake in a certain land type."
