This map for the outdoors enthusiast uses a laser-based terrain elevation technology called lidar (light detection and ranging) as the base.

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.
