LIDAR Data Archive

NGDC is the long term archive for coastal lidar data distributed publicly through the NOAA Office for Coastal Management's Digital Coast. The available data span from the mid-1990's through the present day and were collected using a variety of different lidar systems. The collection includes data from both topographic and bathymetric lidar sensors. The extent of individual lidar surveys varies, ranging from shoreline strips to full county coverage. Many different organizations have contributed to the lidar data collection, including federal, state and local partners. Data are available for all coastal states and include multiple U.S. territories (i.e Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa).

For more information, please visit the NOAA Office for Coastal Management's coastal lidar webpage.

To download coastal lidar data, please see the NOAA Digital Coast Data Access Viewer.

For general information regarding lidar technology as it relates to coastal mapping, please see the Lidar 101 tutorial developed by NOAA OCM.
