LiDAR uses the same principle as Radar but transmits light out to the target. The time for the light to travel to the target and back is used to determine the range of the target. The survey was flown by PTS Ltd during the winter months, this allowed the LiDAR to see through the trees, and many heavily wooded areas are now able to be fully evaluated from the air for the fist time. GADARG have obtained a Lottery grant to take the evaluation further on the ground. It is an on-going project and they will wellcome offers from anyone interested in becomming involved in the projects.
