Title Cumbria Terrestrial Mineral Resource Assessment: Air Photo and Lidar Mapping and Interpretation
Summary This report concerns the air photo and lidar mapping and interpretation element of a wider project titled Cumbria Terrestrial Mineral Resource (CTMR) - Assessing the Impact of Aggregate Extraction on the Historic Environment. The CTMR is funded by English Heritage and operated by Oxford Archaeology North. The air photo and lidar mapping and interpretation element was undertaken by Alison Deegan between January 2013 and October 2013. The air photo and lidar element also contributes to English Heritage's ongoing National Mapping Programme (NMP). Stage 1 of the Cumbria Terrestrial Mineral Resource had defined 11 Study Areas where "the potential for the destruction of the archaeological resource was deemed to be greatest as a result of future aggregate extraction." (Quartermaine and Deegan 2013, 7). This stage produced air photo and lidar mapping and interpretation for those 11 areas and their environs, where there was no existing NMP coverage.
