About the Volunteer Hub
The Chase & Chalke Volunteer Hub has been developed so that everyone can see and get easy access to all the information about our free training and volunteering opportunities across all of the Chase & Chalke projects.
When you have registered on the Chase & Chalke Volunteer Hub you are ready to start your volunteer journey by joining our Lidar Citizen Science volunteer team.
What is Lidar?
Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is method of collecting geographical point data by flying over the landscape and using laser to measure height and distance. The resulting 3-dimensional map is a precise representation of the shape of the landscape and its surface characteristics.
Learn to use lidar data
By exploring the 3D Lidar mapping, you can identify man-made structures, see the full breadth of vegetation cover, and understand the shape of the landscape as a whole. You can digitally remove surface data to reveal long-forgotten heritage sites, such as mines or dwellings, so that archaeologists can focus their ground exploration.
Become a ‘citizen scientist’ and help to discover, understand, and preserve the natural and cultural heritage of the Chase & Chalke landscape, by exploring the Lidar mapping and identifying new and exciting historical sites.
