2006 U.S. Geological Survey Topographic LiDAR: Alameda County
This kmz file shows the extent of coverage for the 2006 USGS Alameda County, CA lidar data.
The Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data set is a survey of Alameda County in Northern California. The entire survey covers approximately 868.382 square miles. The Nominal Point Density of this dataset is approximately 1.66 meters for unobscured areas. The LiDAR discrete-return point cloud data were originally available in the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) LAS V1.2 format.

|Purpose:||High-resolution digital elevation maps generated by airborne and stationary LiDAR have led to significant advances in geomorphology, the branch of geoscience concerned with the origin and evolution of Earth's surface topography. LiDAR provides unique characteristics relative to other remotely sensed data sources by providing three-dimensional feature information that cannot be derived from traditional imaging sensors.|
