Lidar data

I'm not sure what it is going to be used for, but the Lidar data recently opened up by the Environment Agency is remarkable. Here's central Alnwick, hillshaded in QGIS, using 1m DSM elevations downloaded from here.

Thanks to Chris for the comment and pointers.

There's more.

If sea levels continue rising at 3.2mm p.a. Alnwick will look like this by 20,000 a.d. Thankfully our local pub will still be above the waves.


And this is what I reckon the duke can see from the top of Alnwick Castle.

I've taken a look at the LIDAR data too, processing it using GDAL tools to make a similar relief map and also contours. My blog is here: http://chris-osm.blogspot.co.uk/2015/09/more-lidar-goodness.html
