LiDAR tiles have been mosaicked into large file geodatabases for
use. This format can now be accessed only through version 9.2 ESRI
In 2008, ESRI will publish the API so that other vendors can write
in their software for this format. File geodatabases are more compact
SDE databases and--when the user load is low--much faster.
(File geodatebases supplant "personal geodatabases". ArcMap 9.1 cannot
read file geodatabases.)
This is the Clallam survey.
Downloading 2.5 GB is complicated.
A check reveals that this is actually data from 2001-02. The
will soon be altered to show this.
- Download the clallam2005 database
directory with its smaller files
and unzip it into the place where you want it.
- Then download
a00000028.gdbtable into the clallam2005.gdb directory which you
Warning: Internet Explorer has failed on files larger than 2
Netscape works. And very old FAT (new windows filesystems are NTFS)
cannot handle large files.
- Select the .gdb directory in ArcMap:AddData or in ArcCatalog. It
should contain one grid. Have fun with it.
- Delete partofgdb.zip (unless you had unzipped it on the fly)
