Collection of open nation-scale LiDAR datasets

earth observation geoscience geospatial land cover lidar mapping survey


The goal of this project is to collect all publicly available large scale LiDAR datasets and archive them in an uniform fashion for easy access and use. Initial efforts to collect the datasets are concentrated on Europe and will be in future expanded to USA and other regions, striving for global coverage. Every dataset includes files in original data format and translated to COPC format. For faster browsing, we include an overview file that includes a small subset of data points from every dataset file in a single COPC file.

Update Frequency

The exact version of the licence depends on LiDAR dataset and is not the same for all datasets. Look for license.pdf file in the used dataset.
