NOAA Digital Coast Project
LIDAR Data Archive
NCEI is the long term archive for coastal lidar data distributed publicly through the NOAA Office for Coastal Management's Digital Coast. The available data span from the
mid-1990's through the present day and were collected using a variety of different lidar systems. The collection includes data from both topographic and bathymetric lidar
sensors. The extent of individual lidar surveys varies, ranging from shoreline strips to full county coverage. Many different organizations have contributed to the lidar
data collection, including federal, state and local partners. Data are available for all coastal states and include multiple U.S. territories (i.e Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands,
Guam, American Samoa).
