GIS News - LiDAR
Written by glenn   
28 September 2011

For those of you interested in LiDAR and followers of the USGS LiDAR Click website, take note of the following message that appeared just today (Sept 28) on the USGS LiDAR  BB...  

On October 1st 2011, CLICK will be ceasing all of our operations except for off-line archiving of lidar point cloud data provided to us. All other functions of CLICK- the bulletin board, data viewer and download, links to other web sites and presentations, and our Twitter feed will be shut down. There will be limited access to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it email for the time being. We are doing this in order to guarantee that in our limited funding environment all lidar point cloud data that we have been entrusted with does not disappear, but is at least kept on life support until hopefully a new lidar program can take over what we started five years ago.

It has been a great ride getting this project up and running. What started out as a way for scientists to get 3-D information into their research exploded into something much more over the years. Ironically, much more than anyone (other than us at CLICK) expected. I hope we were able to provide a mechanism to get many of you connected and educated, and provide a way for people to get lidar data that made a difference for something other than the original collected intent. We aren't sure what our future holds, but we know that lidar technology in all its forms has enough momentum that it will succeed even without CLICK's help.

We wanted to give you a few days notice, just in case anyone wanted to grab any data and/or information from the site before we are forced to shut it off. Who knows, this may not be good-bye but see you soon. I hope it is just see you soon. Either way, it has been fun.
All the best,
The staff of CLICK
