A interesting line-up one must say.
Here is the latest (2001) definition of the different classes:
They have shown a distinct movement from land use-like classes to more physical
The old "Bare_Rock/Sand/Clay" have been replaced by the simpler "barren_land".
!!This could be an alternative approach to the tag-name. Use "vegetated" or
"barren" as tags.
Maybe I was to specific when looking/and failing to find a tag for all land of
bare rock (stony ground). The vegetated/barren couple could be better.
Anyone got any objections on barren, do it have other meanings?
