Group: Summary

   The NASA IceBridge UAF Lidar Scanner Level-1B Geolocated Surface Elevation 
   Triplets (ILAKS1B) data set contains scanned altimetry points of Alaska 
   Glaciers acquired using the airborne University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) 
   Glacier Lidar system. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge 
   funded aircraft survey campaigns, and are stored in American Society for 
   Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) LASer (LAS) 1.2 sequential binary 
   format and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 19 August 2009 
   to the present via FTP.
