LiDAR data requests

LiDAR Sample data

Contractors have been approached about capturing LiDAR data for areas to be used for Strathearn 2019, the next Scottish 6 Days.  Potentially additional areas across Scotland could be flown as part of the same mission.  Clubs would have to fund additional coverage but it is hoped that the cost would be competitive with photogrammetric plots.
