Uniform: it's the same everywhere (more precisely, the variations from point to point are small enough to ignore)
Non-uniform: it's not the same everywhere.

I think we need to precisely define first different ways of being uniform like isotropy,homogeneity etc.
Earth has a radial field diminishing in strength,but can be considered uniform around a point locally.
