OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of new EarthScope LiDAR topography data from southern California and Washington state. In southern California, this release includes data for faults in the Mojave (Lenwood, Helendale, Calico, Blackwater), eastern California (Panamint, Tin Mtn, Mud Hills, Hunter Mtn, Owens) and San Cayetano. In Washington, data are now available for the Yakima fold and thrust belt. The full data release announcement is below.
OpenTopography is pleased to announce a new grant from the National Science Foundation to fund the operation of OpenTopography as a national lidar data facility.

We have updated the OpenTopography Short Courses page with the lectures, tutorials and sample data, and related documents from last weeks Southern California Earthquake Center sponsored Short Course: Using EarthScope and B4 LiDAR data to analyze Southern California’s active faults.
OpenTopography is pleased to release another round of EarthScope LiDAR topography data. These data cover the Denali and Totschunda faults in Alaska and include a portion of the surface rupture of the 2002 M7.9 Denali Fault Earthquake. Full data release announcement is below.
This week OpenTopography rolled out increased LiDAR point could processing limits and a simplified scheme of user access levels. OpenTopography is a authenticated system whereby users have certain privileges for data access, processing limits, and system features. User level is defined for each user and applied when the user is logged into OpenTopography. The new scheme simplifies users into three levels:
Available GeoEarthScope LiDAR data in southern California has now grown to include the Elsinore fault, the Burro Flats segment of San Andreas fault, and the Crater Mountain portion of the Owens Valley. These data are a new addition to the GeoES SoCal coverage that includes the previously released Garlock fault data.
