Take at look at our History Section for stunning new images of the Fromus Valley Reserve and the site of Kelsale Park.

These images are produced using LIDAR data supplied by the Environment Agency’s Geomatics Group. LIDAR is a laser-based system for measuring ground heights using sophisticated airborne equipment. It measures actual ground levels, penetrating all but the densest vegetation to show the ground surface beneath. With suitable software, the Trust can process this data to produce a detailed 3D image of the landscape, with literally every square metre having its height mapped and displayed. Old river courses, long-lost building platforms and much more can be seen.

We are grateful to Geomatics for providing this data, which is free for private and non-commercial use, and for giving permission for displaying these images on our website.
