Too much information?   Leave a comment

I've started on the relay map for EYOC 2013 at Shimshit, and I'm using LIDAR data for the first time. This creates an abundance of information – maybe too much. The sample below shows the five layers that I have, from right to left:

  • The old map (2004)
  • Contours – at 1m resolution
  • Ground forms
  • Vegetation forms
  • A "normal" aerial photo


The decision-making aspect of mapping is still there, of course, but now it's easier to define my exact location on the map, and the contours are a piece of cake. I've discovered that there are still lots of features that have to be measured, and that the greatest challenge will probably be classifying the vegetation in certain areas.
It's going to be an interesting project, especially taking into account that the map is for an international championship. I'm already looking forward to my nest mapping session.
