2013 Nooksack River Basin LiDAR Project


This project covers the Nooksack River Basin in Northwest Washington. The data was acquired and delivered in two sections.  Section one was acquired between January and April 2013.  Section two was acquired in June 2013. Delivery 1 includes the North Fork and South Fork Nooksack River.  Delivery 2 includes the Middle Fork Nooksack River.  The data was collected as a partnership between the Nooksack Indian Tribe and the Puget Sound LiDAR Consortium.  See the project report below for more information.

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.

Technical Assistance
