Data by Others:
These datasets were contributed by various agencies for distribution through the PSLC.

LiDAR Data from Other Agencies (Non-PSLC contract)

These datasets were flown and processed to specs similar to the PSLC contract specs.  The contracting agencies provided these datasets to for the PSLC to make them available to the public.  Please contact the contracting agency if you have any questions or concerns regarding these data.  Users should carefully determine the place-to-place accuracy and fitness of these data for their particular purposes. For many purposes a site- and use-specific field survey will be necessary.

Bathymetric LiDAR

Bathymetric LiDAR data has also been made available to the public via the PSLC.  If you have any questions please contact the data originator.
Blue-green Bathymetric LiDAR Data from PSNERP/JALBTCX - Final data from the September-October 2003 survey of the saltwater nearshore of the City of Seattle, WRIA9 (south King County, including Vashon and Maury Islands), the Lofall reach of Hood Canal, and Skagit Bay.

Infra-Red/Green Bathymetric LiDAR from Tenix LADS - Data collectd in 2001 for Possession Sound off the shore of south Whidbey Island.


Update Policy 
As we approve data from the contractor they are posted here. Areas within many of the bare-earth DEMs can be improved by further processing of the all-return point data to better isolate bare-earth points. As we make these improvements we will upgrade the bare-earth DEMs and derivative images posted here.
