2005 San Diego Urban Region Lidar

2005 Lidar coverage over cities of San Diego, Poway, and Chula Vista. These lidar data are part of a larger project that collected lidar for a number of coastal cities in San Diego County. Data from the same 2005 lidar project may be available for other cities beyond San Diego, Poway, and Chula Vista but those cities should be contacted individually. Lidar data were collected in conjunction with a three-inch resolution imagery collection for San Diego, Poway, and Chula Vista. Lidar products include LAS files and ASCII canopy data at a minimum; Poway adds two foot contours. Point spacing of LAS data is approximately one meter. Data have also been resampled to a one-ninth arc second grid (three meter spacing) and placed within the National Elevation Dataset.
