New Jersey Statewide LiDAR

elevation geospatial lidar mapping


Elevation datasets in New Jersey have been collected over several years as several discrete projects. Each project covers a geographic area, which is a subsection of the entire state, and has differing specifications based on the available technology at the time and project budget. The geographic extent of one project may overlap that of a neighboring project. Each of the 18 projects contains deliverable products such as LAS (Lidar point cloud) files, unclassified/classified, tiled to cover project area; relevant metadata records or documents, most adhering to the Federal Geographic Data Committee’s (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM); tiling index feature class or shapefile; flights lines feature class or shapefile; Digital Elevation Model in image format or Esri grid format; other derivative data products such as contour lines feature class or shapefile.
