Access Data: available via FTP
|Instrument:||airborne laser altimetry|
|Time Period:||10 December 2004 through 29 January 2005|
|Track Spacing:||typically 15 km|
|Sample Spacing:||20 m|
|Units:||m surface elevation (vs. WGS84 ellipsoid)|
Note: Because of its high resolution, a reduced resolution grid (750 m) of linearly interpolated values is shown for this layer at relatively small map scales to avoid delay. Only when zoomed in far enough are the individual flight tracks and data points observable.
