2016 3-foot Digital Surface Model (DSM) – LARIAC4

The Digital Surface Model (DSM) was acquired as part of the Los Angeles Regional Imagery Acquisition Consortium in 2016. The DSM contains elevations and includes buildings, vegetation, and roads, as well as natural terrain features, whereas the DEM (Digital Elevation Model) represents bare earth.

LA County Bathymetry Data

The USGS developed a number of valuable bathymetric datasets off the coast of Los Angeles County in 1996 that we have loaded into our repository, and are made available here. The datasets include:

Source backscatter data 50 foot contours Bathymetry data in DEM format Hillshade Bathymetric Relief

Coastal LIDAR data from NOAA

The California Ocean Protection Council, in partnership with USGS and NOAA Coastal Services Center, funded a LiDAR data collection effort along the California coast and San Francisco Bay, between 2009-2011. The data were made available last year through the NOAA Coastal Service Center’s Digital Coast Data Access Viewer.

The entire LiDAR dataset is […]

2006 2-foot contours – LAR-IAC

2 foot contours acquired as part of the Los Angeles Regional Imagery Acquisition Consortium in 2006.

The Digital Surface Model was acquired using LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging), which used a laser mounted in planes that were acquiring 4-inch orthophotography data. Hundreds of millions of ground measurements were made using this system, […]
