Abstract

The Lincoln Lidar Project was a partnership developed between the U.S. Geological Survey National Center for Earth Resources Observations and Science (EROS), Lancaster County and the city of Lincoln, Nebraska. This project demonstrated a successful planning, collection, analysis and integration of high-resolution elevation information using Light Detection and Ranging, (Lidar) data. This report describes the partnership developed to collect local Lidar data and transform the data into information useable at local to national levels. This report specifically describes project planning, quality assurance, processing, transforming raw Lidar points to useable data layers, and visualizing and disseminating the raw and final products.
