Mississippi LIDAR

LIDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth. These light pulses—combined with other data recorded by the airborne system— generate precise, three-dimensional information about the shape of the Earth and its surface characteristics.

MARIS has available for delivery LIDAR data for parts of the state. This data is from a variety of projects from the MS Department of Environmental Quality, US Army Corps of Engineers, U.S.G.S, FEMA, and NRCS, NOAA, National Park Service, TVA, and the US Army.
