No, we don't map land ownership because it is usually not verifiable 
which is partly due to privacy concerns from side of the cadastral 
legislations.  In Germany for example land ownership records are not 
public, they may only be viewed by parties with a justified interest.

This is of no relevance here of course, landuse=industrial is simply 
factually wrong because most of the land is not actually used for 
industrial purposes.
