Lidar Illuminated 2013 Calendar, 28 p., 11 x 8.5 inches, by Daniel E. Coe.
Lidar (light detection and ranging) is a remote sensing technique similar to radar that uses light pulses instead of
radio waves. Lidar is typically “flown” or collected from planes and rapidly produces a large collection of very
dense and accurate elevation points (up to 500,000 per second) over a large area. The product can be used to
generate three-dimensional representations of the Earth’s surface and its features.
The Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) uses lidar to create new-generation maps that are more accurate and comprehensive than any in the past. DOGAMI, via the Oregon Lidar Consortium, is continually acquiring new lidar data throughout Oregon. This calendar provides a sampling of the kinds of information that can be obtained with lidar.
