Mapping A section of River Affric


I have used my first outing with the Leica BLK360 Lidar scanner to map a partial section of River Affric near Cannich, Glen Affric, Scotland. This first set of scans mapping around 150m of river bed took around 30 scans. I hope to show the full results and images of those scans soon.
