Other sources of LiDAR

Another place to find LiDAR is from the Environment Agency.  Areas flown by the Environment Agency are mainly near rivers and along the coast. LiDAR images can be downloaded freely for personal non-commercial use from the Geomatics website

Once you register for the service you can search by postcode of place to see if LiDAR has been flown in your area of interest.  The data format you need to choose is DTM, JPEG, then you add the images to your basket. You must then check out and choose 'non-commercial' and provide a description of your project/proposed data use.  Once your order is confirmed you will receive a confirmation email, with an link to download the LiDAR images.  It normally takes a couple of days for non-commerical orders to be confirmed.
