|2004 Connecticut Lidar
|LIDAR data is remotely sensed high-resolution elevation data collected by an airborne
collection platform. Using a combination of laser rangefinding, GPS positioning and
inertial measurement technologies; LIDAR instruments are able to make highly detailed
Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) of the earth’s terrain, man-made structures and vegetation.
This data was collected at submeter resolution to provide nominal 1m spacing of collected
points. Two returns were recorded for each pulse in addition to an intensity value.
This data set is a raster file of z values with 153 columns and 61 rows. The data
set was generated from a larger data set and includes all valid points within the
requested geographic bounds.
