Hello Maine GeoLibrary Data Catalog Consumers,

Good news! The Crown of Maine LiDAR project is now available through the Maine GeoLibrary Data Catalog (https://www.maine.gov/geolib/catalog.html#elevation).

This project encompasses the northern portion of Maine and covers 6,732 square miles. LiDAR data was captured and processed to meet USGS Quality Level 2 (QL2) accuracy standards. Approximately 2/3 of the project was acquired in the spring of 2018, but due to sensor issues and leaf-out conditions, the middle portion of the project was not captured in 2018, but in the spring of 2019. Actual date ranges are from May 12, 2018 through June 8, 2019. 

The State of Maine serves derivative products (Digital Elevation Model (DEM), and contours in the near future) from this dataset and they are available through the Maine GeoLibrary Data Catalog (https://www.maine.gov/geolib/catalog.html#elevation).

The LiDAR point cloud data will be made available through The National Map (TNM) and the United States Interagency Elevation Inventory (USIEI) sites by the end of the year (estimated).

Two-foot contours in vector format are also part of this Crown of Maine deliverable and will be made available in the mid-October timeframe. Stay tuned for an updated announcement on delivery and availability dates.
