OpenTopography Beta Release

Nov 7, 2008

We are pleased to announce the beta release of the OpenTopography Portal. We are still actively working to refine the user interface and navigation, and add content to the pages, but the core functionality of the system is ready and stable. For those of you that have used the GEON LiDAR Workflow running inside the GEON Portal, OpenTopography will be familiar. We hope that OpenTopography will be a more streamlined site for users to get to LiDAR data and will also offer a better environment for users to interact, discuss, and discover resources related to high-resolution topography. Please check out the site and let us know what you think either via email or our feedback form.

Also, please stay tuned to the site as we have a number of new features nearly ready for release and a huge amount of new data that will be available shortly.
