Three dimensional high-resolution LIDAR-based monochrome terrain covering the US Mid Atlantic region, created using Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data from a variety of sources. Most of the map consists of bare-earth LIDAR at a horizontal resolution of 1.2 meters (~4 feet).
This map has just been expanded to twice the size of the original version, including full coverage of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut and Rhode Island with partial coverage of Virginia, West Virginia, New York and Massachussets - over 600 gb of data and 22 million map tiles. Includes full coverage of major Eastern cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore, Hartford, Wilmington, Pittsburgh and others.
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. (Tip: if you prefer a two-dimensional North-up map view, just click the compass.)
