Colville Lidar Project

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Currently, no lidar coverage exists for the Tribal lands on the Colville Reservation, Washington. Any existing coverage in the area is outside of Colville Tribal managed lands. A project  to support the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) and advance USGS efforts related to The National Map and the National Elevation Dataset will acquire lidar-derived high-resolution elevation data and digital orthophotography for a project area approximately 2,899 square miles covering the Colville Indian Reservation and surrounding areas in Washington.

This project will fill a substantial gap in lidar and orthophotography coverage. The Colville Tribe has immediate use for both the lidar and orthophotography to support their restoration plans.
