During 2020 UGRC, the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Utah Division of Emergency Management acquired ~5,262 square miles of 2 and 8 points per meter Quality Level 1 & 2 LiDAR of portions of Northern and Central Utah. The .5 and 1 meter resolution bare earth DEMs and first-return/highest-hit DSMs in .tif format have a 10.0cm vertical RMSE accuracy and are available for download. The LAS point clouds are available from The National Map or by request from Rick Kelson from UGRC at RKelson@utah.gov. This elevation data was collected between April and July, 2020.
