Melmerby Beach – Little Harbour 3D LIDAR

Below are some images of Pictou County that most people are probably not that familiar with. Researchers from the Applied Geomatics Research Group (AGRG) teamed up with Leading Edge Geomatics from New Brunswick to conduct some inaugural test surveys using new 3D LiDAR sensors recently acquired from a Canada Foundation for Innovation research grant.

“The initial processing of the Little Harbour area including Melberby Beach Provincial Park (northeast of New Glasgow) looks very encouraging where the LiDAR penetrated the water and was able to survey the seabed and provide detailed elevations. These data sets can be used to aid in navigating the channels, used as inputs to hydrodynamic models to understand the tidal currents and flushing rates of the harbour, and map what is on the seabed, for example sand or sea grass, which can provide information on the ecosystem health of the harbour.”
