Near infra red zoom map

This page allows you to navigate through the near infrared imagery taken of the whole of the New Forest National Park, during the LiDAR survey. Near Infrared records a band of light not visible with the human eye. Differing moisture levels, ground density and varying coverage seen on the earth's surface absorbed this light in different ways, and this variation can be used to identify archaeological and environmental features.

You can make the page full screen by clicking on the link below the map, as well as zoom in and out and navigate up, down, left and right by using your mouse and the tool bar at the bottom of the window. Please feel free to explore the data further to look at areas of interest and possibly identify new features. You can also see how it compares to the LiDAR and aerial photography.
