Whole of England to be mapped with lasers to tackle flooding and illegal waste dumps - Data is to be made public to archaeologists, urban planners and even gamers
11/02/2018

England's entire landscape will be mapped with lasers to tackle flooding, help conservation work and even track illegal waste dumps, the Environment Agency said. Under plans unveiled by the government agency, aircraft equipped with laser scanners will map all 130,000 sq km of the country in 3D, including rivers, fields and national parks, by 2020.

The data gathered will be used to understand flooding risk and plan flood defences, and will also be made available for free for the public and industry including archaeologists and urban planners.
