This article describes how Lidar (Laser or Light Detection and Ranging) can be used to collect data about coastal habitats. The article gives an introduction of the measurement principle and also explains how to plan for a Lidar-survey. More information about the conversion of collected data and the output of Lidar can be found in the article Data processing and output of Lidar.

Compendium for Coast and Sea - creating a marine science-policy interface


The Compendium for Coast and Sea is an integrated knowledge document about the socio-economic, environmental and institutional aspects of the coast and sea in Flanders and Belgium. As such, it constitutes a one-stop shop for data and information from the Flemish and Belgian marine and maritime research community and experts. The Compendium for Coast and Sea is an initiative of the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) and was developed in close collaboration with experts from the research community, government, industry and civil society organisations. The first version of the Compendium was launched in 2013, a second edition was presented in 2015.
