ESRGC Submits MD LiDAR Maps for 2016 ESRI UC
The ESRGC recently submitted maps to be considered for selection and use in the plenary session for the ESRI User Conference in San Diego, California this year. The ESRI UC is an annual event that attracts over 16,000 GIS users and introduces new and innovative ways GIS is being used across the country. Logan Hall, ESRGC’s LiDAR guru, chose to showcase Maryland’s LiDAR topography server created from a partnership with Maryland Department of Information and Technology (DoIT) and ESRGC/Salisbury University.
The Maryland LiDAR topography server provides public access to the most recent collection of LiDAR data in the state. With over 158 image services hosted through ArcGIS for Server; products include DEMs in meters and feet, aspect, slope, hillshade and shaded relief. Image services are available as statewide mosaics, as well as countywide deliverables. Our LiDAR image services are publicly accessible and have been used for a variety of applications including Maryland State Police search and rescue, watershed analyses, flood management, natural disaster risk assessments, site location analyses, and more.
