Is your agency utilizing or considering using LIDAR data? If so, you know that LIDAR technology has become a valuable tool in a variety of applications where an accurate surface model is required.

The availability of LiDAR data is resulting in a profusion of very large datasets requiring solutions for management and exploitation. In this paper, we will highlight the benefits of LiDAR data, and explore local, state, federal and DOT workflows using LiDAR data (and other data types) in response to a natural disaster. We will demonstrate the managing, exploitation and dissemination of LiDAR in emergency planning, recovery and rebuilding.
