Langdale, Lake District

Last month, the Environment Agency released all of its lidar data as open data, free for anyone to use. So I did! The data covers 72% of England, and includes 2m, 1m, 50cm and 25cm resolution digital terrain models (dtm) and digital surface models (dsm).

This is a great resource, and will get a lot of use in GIS applications. I used FME to create the surfaces and textures, and export to OBJ files. Scenes built using Blender and rendered with Cycles.
