A new lidar dataset covering approximately 63 km2 of the Eastern Cascade Mountains in Washington State is now available on OpenTopography. The study area is located northwest of Ellensburg, WA. This lidar dataset was collected as part of a National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) seed grant for Cassie Lumbrazo at the University of Washington to evaluate the hydrologic effects of forest restoration.
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. OpenTopography is the primary distributor of NCALM data.
