Myth 5: LiDAR data is hard to find
Historically LiDAR data was hard to find due to lack of data and restrictive file sizes. The goal to make LiDAR free to public access has slowly become possible as advancements in technology make it easier and more cost effective.
There are currently a number of programs in place that utilize 3D LiDAR point clouds available through various online platforms.
These datasets can all be found on Equator’s online platform.
