This Geodata pack provides a number of files associated with the Classification of Multidimensional Open Data of Urban Morphology (MODUM). The MODUM classification is a national classification for England and Wales at the Output Area level (2011 Census Geography). It describes the typology of neighbourhoods based on a number of built environment and urban morphology attributes, such as street & railway network, green spaces, retail access and historic buildings, calculated from open data sources.
More details about the data and methodology can be found in an open access academic paper - see the citation below.
