Dear Lands Department,

I would like to request geographic data regarding land use distributions over all of Hong Kong. This would include data on locations with residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, and natural (undeveloped) land cover. The data could be in vector or raster format, suitable for use with GIS software.

Yours faithfully,

Brett Morgan

Lands Department
