3D maps to show extreme weather impact on coastal heritage

Animation showing the threat of climate change is on the horizon, thanks to new 3D laser mapping.

Laser mapping will be used to measure the impact of extreme weather on six Welsh islands in the Irish sea.

The aircraft beams will assess the effect of rising sea levels and storms on locations including Bardsey and Ramsey islands.

The mapping will also create "stunning" animations as part of the first 3D data for many of the islands.
