Project area mapDuring 2020 UGRC and the Utah Division of Emergency Management acquired ~9,740 square miles of 2 and 8 points per meter Quality Level 1 & 2 LiDAR of portions of Southern 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 This elevation data was collected between May and July, 2020.

The naming convention for the tiles are based off the U.S. National Grid (USNG).

This elevation data has a UTM NAD83 (2011) zone 12 north meters NAVD88(GEOID12) projection with the exception of a small strip on the western edge of the project area in zone 11.
