DOGAMI | Lidar Data Viewer - Introduction Interactive map upgrades begin Friday, April 11 The Lidar Data Viewer is undergoing a maintenance update and data layers may not appear. The viewer will return to normal service as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience during these improvements. Until the viewer is back, users can view DOGAMI lidar as a base map option on Oregon HazVu and SLIDO interactive maps. What is the DOGAMI Lidar Data Viewer? This interactive map allows you to view lidar data shaded-relief imagery for Oregon at zoom scales to 1:9,028. Use the "Lidar Quad Search/Purchase" tool on the map to locate and order Lidar Data Quadrangle (LDQ) publications.* Locate LDQs by: Ohio Grid Code USGS topographic quadrangle name *Lidar Data Quadrangles (LDQs) can be purchased through Nature of the Northwest Information Center. What do I need to use the map viewer? To view the map, your browser must have Adobe Flash Player and must allow cookies.

In addition to removing the map borders, hill shading has been added using the 10-meter National Elevation Dataset (NED), which greatly enhances the topography and makes it possible to “see” the 3D effects when using Google Earth in off-line mode. Given the amount of time required to create this layer, and the server resources required, I will be charging a small fee to download the seamless maps. Making the maps available for download allows me to make them available at a higher resolution than I would be able to otherwise. See the Seamless Topographic Maps for Google Earth page for more information. A couple of screenshots are below. USGS Topographic maps provide detailed information such as land use, feature names, the locations of natural features, and topographic elevation contours. Embed Maps In Website

The Bare Earth  For geologists, lidar is an invaluable tool that enables them to see and study large areas of the earth's surface, particularly in places where trees and vegetation obscure the landscape. Lidar (light detection and ranging) is a technology that uses light pulses to collect three-dimensional information. Lidar data is often collected from an airplane using a laser system pointed at the ground. Geologists in Washington State use different bare-earth lidar products to map geology, landslides, and faults, to study volcanoes, glaciers and rivers, and to model tsunami inundation. In geology, lidar bare-earth models allow closer study of geomorphology, which is the study of the origin of the topography of the earth. Scroll down to learn about many of the lidar applications that geologists and geomorphologists are using in Washington State and to see images of the state's intriguing landscape.

Introduction to the Land Cover Viewer << Back to Land Cover Two Biogeographic Analysis Packages provide information derived from the dataset. The user can select an Ecoregion and get summaries of the land cover composition or they can explore individual sites (pixels) within the land cover to see what land cover type has been mapped there. By changing the analysis input, the user can explore different levels of thematic detail (e.g. The GAP/LANDFIRE National Terrestrial Ecosystems data layer provides detailed information about the vegetation of the United States. The Alaska and Continental U.S. portion of the data set contains 680 Ecological systems and 28 land use, introduced vegetation, or disturbed classes. Frequently, this high number of classes provides a level of detail that exceeds a user’s needs. Features used to delineate National Vegetation Classification (NVC) levels: Class dominant general growth forms adapted to basic moisture, temperature, and/or substrate or aquatic Subclass Formation Division Macrogroup Group
