UK LIDAR Mapping
In September the UK Environment Agency released LIDAR data as open data. Open Data Maps allows you to view a lot of this UK LIDAR data as an overlay on an interactive map.
The map includes the LIDAR derived digital elevation data at different resolutions. You can switch between the different resolutions using the 'Layers' menu. If you want to view the LIDAR data for a specific location you can search the map using the 'Location' search bar.
The map includes a number of other overlays, which are great for searching for interesting locations to view with the LIDAR data. These layers include World Heritage Sites, Scheduled Monuments and Conservation Areas.
