Rumor has it that Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is flying all about the great Keystone State collecting and then processing LIDAR data. They are creating 3.2-meter DEMs and 2-foot contours from the data, which kind of blows my mind, and is really impressive. So far, it looks as though Luzerne County data are posted on the Penn State PASDA clearinghouse site, and rumor also has it that at some point, raw LIDAR data will be released. So what that means is that you will be able to analyze canopy, understory, and ground elevations for some random forest in middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania. And this, I think, is brilliant. Well done, Pennsylvania.
