This polygon dataset represents land use in Nairobi. The landuse dataset was created by manually digitizing a map which was prepared jointly by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Government of the Republic of Kenya under the Japanese Government Technical Cooperation Program. The landuse dataset was developed for use in a transportation model. Not all Landuses could be identified from the Landuse map - so there are many places where the landuses is marked as unknown. However this dataset represents a rough estimate of the landuse in Nairobi and will prove useful for the transportation model.
