NSF NEON Short Course: Topographic, Geomorphic, and Vegetation Analysis with Lidar

Jun 8, 2016

OpenTopography, in collaboration with the Boise State University Boise Center Aerospace Lab (BCAL) and NEON, will be teaching a short course this fall on Topographic, Geomorphic, and Vegetation Analysis with Lidar. This workshop is part of a series of NSF/NEON supported training on the use of datasets from the NEON Airborne Observing Platform to enable new discoveries in the biophysical research community.

OpenTopography at the 2015 American Geophysical Meeting

Dec 9, 2015

Come connect with OpenTopography at the 2015 American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco! OpenTopography will be in booth #211 on "NSF Street" in the exhibit hall. The booth is shared with the National Center for Laser Mapping (NCALM). Our booth is staffed by the OpenTopography team and community members, and is a great chance to ask questions, provide feedback, or discuss lidar, high resolution topography, or cyberinfrastructure.

Raster data now available for areas in California, Colorado, New Hampshire, and Washington

Oct 8, 2015

OpenTopography is happy to announce the release of seven new raster datasets. These datasets are derived from previously released point cloud data, and allow users to quickly and easily access high resolution digital elevation models. Six of these datasets were collected by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM). NCALM is a NSF-funded center that supports the use of airborne laser mapping technology (a.k.a.

New Point Cloud Data Available in Eastern California

Jun 11, 2015

OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of two new datasets in eastern California: the Poleta Folds and Surprise Valley. The Poleta Folds airborne lidar data were collected by Chris Larson of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  This dataset is particularly exciting because the area is a beautiful example of classic structural geology, where many universities teach undergraduate mapping courses.
