Dame Judy Dench hosts BBC documentary

Scanning a 200 year-old oak

In his latest Blog, Dr Mat Disney describes how he came to be involved in lidar scanning a 200 year old oak tree in Dame Judy Dench’s garden for a BBC1 documentary, to be shown on 20th. December.

His group estimated the mass of the tree to be 25 tons, the number of leaves at 260,000, and the length of branches 12 km, more than any other tree they have measured, even in the tropics.

Atlantic Productions, the production company, also made an impressive VR fly-through of the lidar data, which ran at the reception after the preview screening and looked amazing!.
