Much of the north has been mapped already, with more planned through 2015. LiDAR is able to provide a lot of detail that isn't always detected using other methods. Dr. Steven Pawley is Quaternary Geologist with the Alberta Geological Survey and the Alberta Energy Regulator.

    "Lidar" is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light. Although thought by some to be an acronym of Light Detection And Ranging, the term lidar was actually created as a portmanteau of "light" and "radar". Lidar is popularly used as a technology to make high-resolution maps, with applications in geomatics, archaeology, geography, geology, geomorphology, seismology, forestry, remote sensing, atmospheric physics, airborne laser swath mapping , laser altimetry, and contour mapping. Lidar originated in the early 1960s, shortly after the invention of the laser, and combined laser-focused imaging with radar's ability to calculate distances by measuring the time for a signal to return. Its first applications c...

    A sophisticated technique using lasers from an aircraft to map the terrain below has been helped by Higher Level Stewardship funding. Lidar (Light Detection And Ranging), is a technique that is able to peel back the vegetation in the computer to reveal previously unknown landforms below. It has both archaeological and environmental uses that improve our knowledge of the New Forest, taking the Forest's past history into the future.

"Lidar" is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light. Although thought by some to be an acronym of Light Detection And Ranging, the term lidar was actually created as a portmanteau of "light" and "radar". Lidar is popularly used as a technology to make high-resolution maps, with applications in geomatics, archaeology, geography, geology, geomorphology, seismology, forestry, remote sensing, atmospheric physics, airborne laser swath mapping , laser altimetry, and contour mapping. Lidar originated in the early 1960s, shortly after the invention of the laser, and combined laser-focused imaging with radar's ability to calculate distances by measuring the time for a signal to return. Its first applications came in meteorology, where the National Center for Atmospheric Research used it to measure clouds. The general public became aware of the accuracy and usefulness of lidar systems in 1971 during the Apollo 15 mission, when astronauts used a laser altimeter to map the surface of the moon. Although some sources treat the word "lidar" as an acronym, the term originated as a portmanteau of "light" and "radar". The first published mention of lidar, in 1963, makes this clear: "Eventually the laser may provide an extremely sensitive detector of particular wavelengths from distant objects. Meanwhile, it is being used to study the moon by 'lidar' ..." The "Oxford English Dictionary" supports this etymology. Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.
