Lidar image, Argonne Forest

Image Lidar de la forêt d'Argonne

Lidar is a method for making aerial surveys using lasers and is useful in areas covered by dense vegetation. Highly precise geographical information is obtained in three dimensions, allowing relief to be visualised. This method has been of particular use to archaeologists studying remains from the Great War in the Argonne Forest, for example, in this view of the Borrieswalde base camp belonging to the German army. Find out more on the Great War Archaeology site.
