The New York state GIS Program Office (NYSGPO) is pleased to share news that we plan to collect Quality Level 2 LiDAR data that will cover all or parts of three counties (Erie, Genesee, and Livingston) in NY, replacing three LIDAR-derived datasets. This project is roughly 2,416 square miles. Completion of this project in conjunction with current FEMA projects will mean the NY portion of the Lake Erie drainage is covered by LIDAR from 2016 or later, while the Southwest Lake Ontario drainage will be covered by LIDAR from 2014 or later. To view all existing and In-Progress LiDAR coverages be sure to visit our NYS LIDAR Coverage Page. Once all current and planned acquisitions are complete the state will have 99% LiDAR coverage.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
