Oregon Lidar Consortium
DOGAMI oversees the Oregon Lidar Consortium (OLC), which develops cooperative agreements for lidar 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 70 partners and collected lidar data for more than 78 percent of Oregon’s populated areas. Learn more about the OLC and lidar collection.
