Through laser mapping surveys we also recorded high resolution aerial imagery to help support the features seen in the Lidar data.

Unlike web services such as Google Earth which use satellite imagery, these images were captured from an aeroplane and recording was undertaken during the winter months so that there was less leaf cover on the trees.

The imagery can be used to identify earth works, crop marks and parch marks all associated with archaeological remains. The data can also be used to help record ecological changes within woodlands and heathland.
