Our Head of Data Insight recently made an appearance in an article published by the Environment Agency (EA), promoting the use of LiDAR data in startups. We use a lot of the open data outputted by the EA as part of their Open Defra programme and this was a great opportunity to showcase some of it and thank the EA for their work.
It's been a busy 6 months since we released our 'Building Heights of London' application and associated Open Data download based upon the Environment Agency's LiDAR data. Since then the Emu Analytics team has been busy working on a new dataset to allow us to output building heights across England and introduce our new Emu DataPacks product.
