Near infrared records a band of light not visible with the human eye. It has been captured using an infrared camera during Lidar flights.

The camera looks at a different spectrum of light to that which we normally see with the naked eye.

Differing moisture levels, ground density and varying vegetation coverage seen on the earth’s surface absorb this light in different ways, and this variation can be used to identify archaeological and environmental features.

Explore the whole National Park and surrounding area in infrared.
