NH Gets Lidar

nhSince New Hampshire has been my home for the past 40 years I had to take note of this article in a local paper explaining to the public how lidar is being used to 3D map 80% of the state. The coast had been done under a consortium of New England states and New York a few years ago, but now we will have most of the state covered and available to the public late next summer.

The data collection project is a partnership between the state, the U.S. Geological Survey, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the White Mountain National Forest.

Kudos to all involved.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Jeremiah Johnson and I am a commercial pilot based in Denver, CO. As a native New Hampshirite and pilot interested in aerial survey I found this article on Lidar’s role in mapping New Hampshire very interesting. I have been living and working in Colorado for the past 4 years flying for aerial photography and air ambulance companies, but I am planning to move back to New England in 2016 and flying aerial survey for these kinds of projects is exactly the kind of work I am looking for. Do you have any information on the specifics of what state and/or federal organizations were involved in this project? I would be very interested in contacting them in regards to possible future employment. Thank you for your assistance, I really enjoy these daily articles about lidar and the remote sensing industry.
