The Vermont Center for Geographic Information’s Lidar Program (VLP) is months away from achieving full lidar coverage for the entire state of Vermont and they are excited! Lidar, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to generate precise, three-dimensional information about the earth and its surface characteristics. Uses range from hydrological modelling and high resolution land cover mapping to mountain bike trail planning and archeological exploration. Learn more about what lidar data is, new ways to obtain it and how planners can make of use this incredibly useful data.
