Mapping

This dataset is the complete national tile catalogue for LIDAR time stamped DSM & DTM datasets. Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is an airborne mapping technique, which uses a laser to measure the distance between the aircraft and the ground. Up to 100,000 measurements per second are made of the ground, allowing highly detailed terrain models to be generated at spatial resolutions of between 25cm and 2 metres. The Environment Agency's LIDAR data archive contains digital elevation data derived from surveys carried out by the Environment Agency's specialist remote sensing team. Accurate elevation data is available for over 70% of England. Data may be available at 2m, 1m, 50cm, and 25cm resolution. Historic data are available for some areas where we have carried out repeat surveys. These can be supplied as a combined Digital Surface Model produced from the signal returned to the LIDAR (which includes heights of objects, such as vehicles, buildings and vegetation, as well as the terrain surface) and Digital Terrain Model (a "bare earth" model with surface objects filtered out of the DSM by applying bespoke software techniques).
