Sept 7, 2012 - LiDAR and Imagery Project Update

Imagery (1 ft resolution) is available for a portion of the Matanuska Block. The coverage unfortunately is not complete because portions of the block were not flown last year to due poor collection conditions. All areas that were flown in 2011 are available and the remaining areas will be flown and made available this year.

These data products can be ordered from the MSB Data Ordering Portal and will soon be available for downloaded from the GINA webpage.

The July 5th update provides more information about the two different order/download sites.

All other data is out of initial production and into the Quality Assurance Quality Control (QA/QC) process.

We will let you know as more products become available.

Many thanks,
