Where in the World is LiDAR Being Used? Top 6 Uses from 2021

With increasing awareness of LiDAR technology, its applications are becoming more diverse. From helping to prevent natural disasters to mapping historic caves and restoring architectural wonders, our ZEB laser scanners have been involved in a range of interesting projects over the past 12 months.

Poole’s Cavern

Chartered land surveryors, GeoTerra were invited by the BCRA (British Cave Research Association) to scan the cavern, so they could gain a better understanding of the geological formation.

Deep Time 40

For 40 days, 15 participants set up camp in the Lombrives cave in southwestern France with no clocks or sunlight, and zero contact to the outside world.
