Description: LiDAR Color Hillshade (2011 - 2013) - This custom hillshade was created by personnel of the Indiana Geological Survey from the 1.5m DEMs. Image cache was created by using the colorized DEM, hillshade, and slope data. It was last updated on February 14, 2014.
The State of Indiana has completed a 3-year program (begain in 2011) to acquire 1-foot resolution orthophotography (RGBI) and elevation data for the entire state (counties may elect to buy-up to 6-inch or 3-inch resolution imagery). The program includes new USGS-compliant light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data at either 1.0 meter or 1.5 meter average post spacing, as well as DEM products with 5-foot post spacing. The project is divided into three acquisition areas: center (2011), east (2012), and west (2013).
Classified LiDAR point cloud data (in LAS file format, version 1.2) and bare-earth DEMs (with hydroflattening, in ERDAS IMAGINE format of *.IMG) are available for download from the Indiana Spatial Data Portal (ISDP), University Information Technology Services (UITS), Indiana University.
