Bangladesh is a south Asian country with lush greenery and many natural waterways. Bangladesh consists mostly out of fertile flat lands. Due to urbanisation, agricultural expansion and intensification as result of population and economic growth the use of the natural land system is changing rapidly. Understanding current land cover and how the land is being used is elementary for land management and land use planning. In this study we developed a spatial land use classification database of Bangladesh based on existing land cover classifications, census data of agricultural yields, cropping areas, and supplemented with local knowledge.
