NOAA NCEI Coastal Lidar Archive

NCEI is the long term archive for coastal lidar data distributed publicly through the NOAA Office for Coastal Management's Digital Coast. Data span from the mid-1990's through the present, 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).
