The Department of the Interior has developed a website that provides information on how the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act – ARRA stimulus funds are being spent on individual projects. Specific LiDAR projects being funded with stimulus money are being discussed at this dedicated website sponsored by the USGS. It appears that of the $140 million ARRA funding allocated to the USGS that $14.6 million will be for imagery and elevation data. It certainly is a positive, but I was hoping for more.
Have to keep this short as I am off to the previously mentioned NEURISA laser scanning and LiDAR session.
