LIDAR tips for my permission?

Post by Euro Detector » Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:03 pm

Hello everyone,

Does anybody have any tips to look up LIDAR maps for a permission?

Hi,

Wow that is really good detail.

I'm sorry but I can't help you but where did you find those images?

I'm thinking I may be able to focus on all the land I have to find any features that lie beneath and then feed back on to here.

Thanks

Perhaps evidence of historic field boundary changes.

Some of what appears to be visible on the Lidar is also visible on the satellite, e.g. the long diagonal line looks like you can see it cutting accross the fields.

And that sort of thing, which may be a path, is often visible in the lidar and can hark back to when field layout were different.

If the lidar line is very straight it can also sometimes show an old field boundary.

I also notice an odd little triangle in the wooded area on the left of the map, could be something now hidden by trees and may be worth a sweep.

I use this Lida tool now, https://www.lidarfinder.com/ , I like the side by side feature so you can roll it over the sat image more easily.

Have you used the historical imagery feature in Google Earth to see if any of the Lidar details are visible on older sat images? Might be worth a look.

And I assume you've looked at historical maps to see if any of those features correspond to older layouts/features?

The lidar 'targets' may not prove to have any relevance to finds, but when you've got to start somewhere... why not with where you have some potential clues?

Good luck and let us know if you find anything in those lidar potentials.

Completely agree with the comments above. Lidar is a piece of a jigsaw but it's difficult to see the whole picture with just one piece. Paths follow a course from one place to another in the shortest possible route. Zoom out and see if any lines carry out. Overlay other old maps and satellite images.

It looks interesting though ::g

You might find the below useful too, it's English Heritage's guide to using Lidar for archaeological research, decent summary read.

Thanks very much for the posts. I will try my luck on those spots hopefully next weekend and will update you of the finds. Thanks for the tip to use the historical imagery feature in Google Earth and historic maps, will try that too.
