OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of thirteen datasets collected by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) over areas of Arizona, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. NCALM is an NSF-funded center that supports the use of airborne laser mapping technology (a.k.a. lidar) in the scientific community and is jointly operated by the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Cullen College of Engineering, University of Houston and the Department of Earth and Planetary Science, University of California-Berkeley.
We are pleased to announce the release four datasets collected by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) over areas of California, Colorado, Idaho and North Carolina. NCALM is an NSF-funded center that supports the use of airborne laser mapping technology (a.k.a.
On account of the winter holiday break and San Diego Supercomputer Center and University of California, San Diego campus-wide closures, OpenTopography will be providing reduced support between December 24th and January 2nd. OpenTopography systems will be fully available and users may run jobs as they normally do. However, responses to email, system outages, and bug reports may be delayed. If you have questions or concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

OpenTopography booth in the exhibit hall - We're sharing a booth with NCALM again this year. Booth #101 in "NSF Row". Stop by to see OT demos, get updates on the latest datasets, and to talk with the OT team. We'll also be giving away these:
We are pleased to announce the release several new datasets including new community contributed data from Virginia, updates to the existing Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) dataset and nine new NCALM datasets from portions of California, Illinois, Montana and Utah. These data cover a wide range of geologic environments including Crater Lake National Park, Death Valley National Park, the Northern California Coast Range, Big Sky in Montana and Raplee Ridge Anticline in Utah.
Over the past few months we have made several updates and improvements to OpenTopography. Some of these updates are visible to OpenTopography users while many are on the backend including bug, fixes, system software updates, and other modifications to improve stability, processing speed, and new feature integration. A summary of the recent updates made in OpenTopography v. 3.9 and 3.10 releases:
Five datasets covering areas of Puerto Rico, Oregon, California and Colorado are now available through the OpenTopography portal. Data were collected for various purposes including refining algorithms for vegetation classification, debris flow sediment storage and mechanics, and studying river terrace formation and abandonment.
OpenTopography has recently released six new datasets covering portions of Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida and Missouri. Five of the datasets were collected by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) and are now available as part of an ongoing process to make NCALM data available through OpenTopography. The sixth dataset was collected for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) over the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ), which spans the Arkansas/Missouri border.
