(previously named LIDAR in the Mid-Atlantic 3d, changed to reflect the new, larger coverage area)

Grayscale shaded three-dimensional terrain created from high resolution LIDAR DEM (Digital Elevation Model) data. Full coverage of New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine with partial coverage of Virginia and West Virginia. Bare earth LIDAR DEM at a resolution of 4 feet (1.2 meters) per pixel was used where available. The highest available resolution data was used in other areas.

Tilt, rotate, drag and zoom the map in three dimensions for realistic views of the terrain. LIDAR penetrates the tree canopy to reveal details on the ground that aren't visible on aerial imagery, such as foundations of buildings that no longer exist or roads that are grown-over. The LIDAR elevation is shown in a realtime heads-up display as you move around the map.

A two-dimensional version of the map is also available and should be used unless you are actually viewing the map in 3d mode. Click the compass in the top left corner to toggle between 2d and 3d mode.

Click the blue cube in the toolbar (desktop version only) to open the Terrain Viewer, a powerful app with interactive controls to change the appearance of the terrain and reveal hidden details.
