NOAAs Digital Coast is a great resource for coastal lidar data. These data, contributed from many organizations, range from shoreline strips to full county coverage, span more than a decade, and include data from both topographic and bathymetric lidar sensors. Unique download capabilities allow users to customize outputs to desired parameters. Projection, horizontal and vertical datums, units of measure, and output are some of the parameters users can customize. The Digital Coast, which was developed by the NOAA Coastal Services Center, also provides additional coastal data sets and related tools and training.
