Q: Do NERC-ARF supply software to process the LiDAR data?


For ASCII format LiDAR the point cloud filter software is supplied with the delivery to remove noisy points.

For generating raster products such as Digital Surface Models (DSMs) and Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) and creating mosaics from multiple lines our open source (GPLv3) 'dem scripts' are available to download from GitHub ( The GitHub page contains instructions on installing the scripts and a tutorial on usage with NERC-ARF data.

More LiDAR packages are available on the links page, in particular see the LAStools package for handling LAS files.

If there is specific LiDAR processing you are interested in please contact us for advice.
