Count Component Title Abstract
1 U.S. Coastal Lidar Elevation Data - Including the Great Lakes and Territories, 1996 - present The NOAA Coastal Services Center manages and distributes lidar data for the coastal United States, including territorial possessions via the Digital Coast Data Access Viewer web-mapping application. The data span from the mid-1990's to the present and were collected using several different sensors. The collection includes data from topographic and bathymetric lidar sensors. Data are available for shoreline strips to full county coverage and larger. The products have been delivered to the CSC in various formats, projections, datums, and units. Once received, the data are reviewed, checked for errors, and standardized in a single format, projection, and datum. The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center serves as the long-term archive of these data.

    Count Component Use Limitation
    1 Lidar Use Limitation These data depict the elevations at the time of the survey and are only accurate for that time. Users should be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions. Users should not use this data for critical applications without a full awareness of its limitations. Any conclusions drawn from analysis of this information are not the responsibility of NOAA or any of its partners. These data are NOT to be used for navigational purposes.
