LiDAR is an acronym for Light Detection and Ranging. In brief, it is a remote sensing technology that uses aircraft-mounted lasers to measure topography on the ground. Edmonds' LiDAR data was gathered in early 2005; a report summarizing the project can be found here.
Individual maps showing 2-foot topographic contours of the city derived from our LiDAR survey are available by clicking on the desired area on the map grid (below). In addition to the topographic contours, the individual section maps also show features such as streets, property lines, etc.
Important note: These maps have been provided for general informational purposes. The data utilized comes from a variety of governmental sources and the City does not warrant it's accuracy.
