Sylvan Lake LiDAR
Access LiDAR Data

Equator is pleased to announce the launch of the Sylvan Lake LiDAR dataset in Equator. The Sylvan Lake LiDAR data set covers approximately 14,000 ha and was collected in 2009. This high-resolution elevation data, provided through Equator, provides significant capabilities for city builders, such as civil engineers, architects and construction professionals.

The Sylvan Lake LiDAR data set has been launched in entwine format on the Equator platform, allowing LiDAR point cloud data to be streamed to the user online in real-time. This is consistent with Equator’s mission to improve access to and usability of high-resolution elevation data.

ABOUT THE SYLVAN LAKE LIDAR DATA SET

The Sylvan Lake LiDAR data set is published by the Alberta Data Partnerships under the Open Data Areas Data License and is available in the Geographic Information and Geospatial Resources Catalogue. The estimated accuracy of the LiDAR is 10cm RMSE vertical and 20cm RMSE horizontal.

The Sylvan Lake LiDAR data set can also be accessed using the Equator platform. Equator enables users to view the LiDAR point cloud online, take measurements and cross sections, and design directly with the data online. Equator can also be used to generate smooth contours, digital elevation models (DEMs), Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), 3D printable meshes (STLs), and point file exports (LAZ).
