    Collection Overview: This page offers access to lidar data acquired along the Northern San Andreas fault and associated marine terraces in coastal Sonoma and Mendocino counties, California. This dataset covers approximately 418 square kilometers and includes approximately 1.2 billion data points. Point density is 1.2 points per square meter.

    These data were acquired by NASA, in collaboration with the United States Geologic Survey and the Puget Sound Lidar Consortium, with funding provided by NASA's Earth Surface and Interior Focus Area. The data was collected and processed by Terrapoint. The data are in the public domain with no restrictions on their use.
