OpenTopography is happy to announce the release of approximately 13,000 km2 of lidar throughout Utah, and parts of Idaho & Colorado. These data were collected between 2015 and 2017 and were funded collaboratively by the Utah Department of Natural Resources and many state and local agencies. The 2015-2017 State of Utah Lidar Acquisition project includes portions of Bear Lake in Utah and Idaho, the Bear River, Cache Valley, Utah FORGE Project, Great Salt Lake, Minidoka National Wildlife Refuge (Idaho), Monroe Mountain, Utah Lake, Washington County, Washakie, Weber Valley, and the Whites Valley areas in Utah and the Colorado and Green River corridors in Utah. Project specifications are based on the U.S. Geological Survey National Geospatial Program Base Lidar Specification, Version 1.4.
These data are available through OpenTopography thanks to an ongoing collaboration between OT and the Utah Geological Survey.
