Lidar (also called LIDAR, LiDAR, and LADAR) is an acronym of Light Detection And Ranging (sometimes Light Imaging, Detection, And Ranging). Lidar  is a surveying method that measures distance to a target by illuminating that target with a laser light and is popularly used to make high-resolution maps. The following three Lidar maps show the seabed either side of Deal Pier from Sandown Castle (remains) in the north to Granville Road in the south.
