The UK topography which has traditionally been defined by teams of Ordnance Survey surveyors is now defined in greater detail by a countrywide program of LIDAR laser scanning. Expert interpreter Andy McGrandle will show us how this new data is acquired and what it can show us with reference to a small village in north Buckinghamshire, where this modern high-resolution data is being used to illuminate long forgotten features seen on maps of the area from the late 1700’s.

 The talk is illustrated with additional examples of the application of LIDAR data over Cranbourne Chase and Chiltern Hill Forts, together with some examples over project areas of local interest to the Marlow and Cookham area.
