Lidar-based imagery provides unprecedented detail of the land surface and the built environment. To showcase the detail available from lidar, DOGAMI has started a series of Oregon scenes.

Lidar Explored 2015 Calendar, 28 p., 11 x 8.5 inches | preview/order

Kinds of publications and pricing:
  • LDQ (Lidar Data Quadrangle): data only; generally contain a standard set of data files: a bare earth digital elevation model (DEM), a highest hit DEM, and intensity tiff images, all in ESRI grid format. Grid data must be viewed using specialty GIS software (e.g., ESRI ArcGIS; Microstation TerraSolid; VLS LIDAR Analyst; IDL/ENVI; ERDAS IMAGINE; Intergraph GeoMedia). Metadata, readme, shapefiles, extents, and 7.5 and 1/100th quad index files are also included. All grid data have been tiled to USGS 7.-minute quadrangles and referenced to Ohio Code (e.g., 45122D5 = Gladstone quadrangle). Intensity TIFFs have been tiled to 1/100th 7.5-minute quads and referenced to Ohio Code (e.g., 45122D5418). Typical DVD file size for an entire quadrangle is 2-4 GB. Learn more
  • LIS (Lidar Imagery Series): bare-earth and highest-hit imagery produced from lidar data. Consists of NW, NE, SW, and SE quarters of the 7.5-minute quadrangle. Each quarter quad is a PDF of height 36 inches, width 60 inches. Learn more | sample preview
  • Pricing: LDQ (including bundles): $200; LIS: $30. Add $4 for shipping and handling. Order publications from Nature of the Northwest Information Center.
