We are excited to be launching this new website, which will make available imagery from various LiDAR datasets from across the county, including the recently obtained high resolution data covering over 190 square km along the Darent Valley and area of the Sevenoaks Commons, at the western end of the Kent Downs AONB (read more about the local landscapes here).
On this Portal, you can explore the LiDAR from the Darent Valley and other areas, and you can also find out how to get involved in our project to map archaeological features across Kent.
LiDAR is an exciting tool which, with the right set of eyes and careful research, has enormous potential to uncover previously unknown archaeological features, whether old field boundaries, hillforts, bomb craters or other hidden sites waiting to be revealed. By helping map and interpret these potential features online, our team of local archaeological volunteers can then go out into the field and investigate them on the ground, recording and ultimately working to build a more complete story of the local landscape.
In order to view the imagery and get started with any recording, you must first register for a free account.
