The development of new remote sensing techniques has opened up exciting opportunities for monitoring landscape change, nature conservation and the protection of rural heritage.
Techniques such as LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), aerial photography, satellite imagery and the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), provide the opportunity to measure change in the landscape at a scale and detail not previously possible.
Encroaching vegetation cover across important grassland habitats, identification of flooding potential, ancient tree identification, measuring tranquillity and the uncovering of hidden heritage are all now possible.
These provide an opportunity to manage and conserve nature in a more integrated and balanced way.
