HARC takes delivery of high-accuracy Lidar data for the Houston-Galveston region
HARC has recently taken delivery of high-accuracy Lidar data flown in 2018 for the greater Houston-Galveston region. The dataset includes both elevation datapoints as well as building footprints. Lidar is a surveying method that measures distance to a target by illuminating the target with pulsed laser light and measuring the reflected pulses with a sensor. Lidar can be used for hydrologic studies, flood mitigation planning, and land cover determination. For more information about conducting a project with HARC using the Lidar data, contact the HARC Geospatial & Analytics team at HARCGIS@HARCresearch.org or visit our webpage at GIS.HARCresearch.org to see our recent work.
