Description 
Summary

The INtegrated Mapping FOr the Sustainable Development of Ireland's MArine Resource (INFOMAR) programme is a joint venture between the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) and the Marine Institute (MI). The programme is the successor to the Irish National Seabed Survey (INSS) and concentrates on creating integrated mapping products related to the seabed. INFOMAR LIDAR surveyed areas represent areas where Lidar (also written LIDAR or LiDAR), a remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analysing the reflected light, has been used to survey shallow waters. The term lidar comes from combining the words light and radar.
