A land use is the way in which land is used, especially in farming and city planning.
Other /More definition:
A Land Use is the degree to which the land reflects human activities (e.g., residential and industrial development, roads, mining, timber harvesting, agriculture, grazing, etc.). Land Use describes how a piece of land is managed or used by humans. Land Use is generally locally regulated in the U.S. based on zoning and other regulations. Land Use mapping differs from land cover mapping in that it is not always obvious what the Land Use is from visual inspection.
