Aerial mapping helps restore national park in U.K

UK: Experts are using high resolution aerial photomaps and laser surveyed 3D terrain maps for moorland restoration work in England’s most visited national park.

Earlier, the experts were using LiDAR laser mapped data and aerial photography for the Peatland Restoration Project. Now, the Moors for the Future Partnership, on behalf of the National Trust, has purchased high resolution aerial photomaps and laser surveyed 3D terrain maps which are being used to monitor changes in the landscape over time. This has helped in peat restoration, gully blocking and reestablishment of vegetation. “This enables us to evidence vital moorland conservation work which brings benefits to water quality, carbon store, wildlife and landscape,” said Tia Crouch, Research Assistant at the Moors for the Future Partnership. The data has been purchased from Bluesky.
