In 2016 the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) acquired LiDAR around Fredonia, AZ that covers ~150 square miles of Utah with 8 points per meter Quality Level 1 LiDAR and includes Kanab, UT. The .5 meter resolution bare earth DEMs and first-return/highest-hit DSMs in .img format have a 10.0cm vertical RMSE accuracy and are available for download. The LAS point clouds, classified to ground, low, medium, and high vegetation, are available from The National Map or by request from Rick Kelson from UGRC at RKelson@utah.gov. This elevation data was collected between October and December, 2016 and has a UTM NAD83 (2011) zone 12 north meters NAVD88(GEOID12) projection.
