Compared to the previous LGN version (LGN2020), the class solar parks was added, the LGN class 25 'Hoofdwegen en spoorwegen' was split into 3 classes, the LGN class 24 'Kale grond inprimair bebouwd gebied' was removed and LGN class 45 got a different definition and the name changed into 'Natuurlijk beheerde agrarische graslanden'.
