Laser mapping to pinpoint prime grapegrowing areas

Laser mapping data can help the English wine industry identify the best places to grow grapes, says a UK government department, as it releases the data to the public. Growers can make use of 3D LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) maps to understand variations in slope and aspect, pinpointing the best locations for vines to thrive in. It is estimated that an additional 75,000 acres of land in England is prime for grapegrowing.
