GeoCue adds Puerto Rico LIDAR data to GetLIDAR.com to Support Hurricane Recovery

Huntsville, AL – In early October 2017, GeoCue Group launched GetLIDAR.com to provide free and direct access to pre-event imagery and LIDAR data for the hurricane-stricken areas of Texas and Florida. Now, GeoCue has added LIDAR data for the coastal areas of Puerto Rico. Some 6,033 LIDAR files from 2004 and 2015 are now available from GetLIDAR.com. The current inventory of data includes:

Texas
• 980 LIDAR tiles in Aransas-Refugio, Orange, Jefferson counties areas
• 189 ortho photos in the Houston and Refugio area
• NAIP from 2014 and earlier

Florida
• NAIP from 2015 and earlier, some 2016 data
• 27,390 LIDAR files for most of coastal Florida

Puerto Rico
• 6,033 LIDAR files for the entire Coastal Area

The data are provisioned on GeoCue Group’s Earth Sensor Platform (ESP), hosted in Amazon Web Services, and are available at GetLIDAR.com. ESP is developed by GeoCue Group as a component of the Multi User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) project of Teledyne Technologies. The data catalogued in GetLIDAR.com has been provided by the United States Geological Service (USGS), Texas Natural Resources Information System (TNRIS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) and includes:

  • LIDAR data in both American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) LAS format as well as compressed LAZ format.
  • 50 cm orthophotography in US Geologic Survey (USGS) quarter quad format for the Harris county area, provided by the Texas Natural Resources Information System (TNRIS). Collected on behalf of the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC).
  • 2004 USACE LIDAR and 2015 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) NGS Topobathy LIDAR data in LAS or LAZ format from NOAA for Puerto Rico.
