High Weald

To see the LiDAR image, identify the place you want to look at and click on the square.

Each LiDAR image covers one square kilometre with about half a kilometre to the east and to the west. The edge of the Weald Forest Ridge coverage is shown by a purple line. Towns are not covered.

The LiDAR image shows a bare landscape, without trees or vegetation. The exceptions are evergreens such as rhododendron, holly or dense conifer, which show as brown clumps. This happens when the laser has not been able to penetrate and this patch of ground could not be modelled. Buildings and standing water often appear brown too.

It is easy to pick out man-made modern features such as roads and railways. If you print out the LiDAR, always look at it with north at the top (as it is given here). If you turn the print upside down, valleys will look like hills and vice versa!
