Oregon Lidar Consortium

DOGAMI oversees the Oregon Lidar Consortium (OLC), which develops cooperative agreements for lidarĀ  collection. The model leverages funding from multiple partners to cost effectively obtain data, which is ultimately made available for free download. To date, the OLC has had more than 80 partners and collected lidar data for more than 98 percent of Oregon’s populated areas. Learn more about the OLC and lidar collection.
