    LIDAR website is up and running!

    Hey everyone!

    I recently managed to get my website launched that is dealing primarily with providing LIDAR to prospectors and detectorists. I will say after taking almost a month to build i appreciate the people who build and run these types of forums even more now!

    The website is directed at LIDAR for prospectors and detectorists, but my eventual goal is for it to be the go to source for prospecting research as well, this is because i am slowly adding to the Document Library that i been building there, and over the coming months i will be adding all the various prospecting and mining related documents that ive found in my research. The overall plan is to make the document library the a one stop place for all gold related documents, that way when a prospector is doing research he doesn't have to scour the web for obscure hard to find articles. I should caveat here as well that the website is not aimed at claim research as i am not the most familiar with the claim system, it is aimed at geologic and historic mines research. There are lots of websites out there dedicated to the claim system, for that type of info http://www.mylandmatters.org/ cant be beat!

    After you look at the site please leave feed back here as this is the first website that ive built and it was learning process to say the least!

    Well here is the link!

    Interesting. The small print could be a little larger and the background images make that small text hard to read. More contrast please. I am however going to bookmark your site.

    MGumby16, I am sorry, but since your website is selling products you are required to be a paying supporting vendor to advertise it or post links to it.

    First I will ask, Why? Lidar maps are free on all the areas I mine here in the western US. It was a surprise that you are charging for something that is free.

    et1955 - The raw data is free but in most cases that data needs to be taken and run through a number of programs to be turned into something viewable and usable. And generally the free viewers that ive seen like what Oregon does is still not as high of resolution as what can be produced. And being able to overlay it on google earth is the best possible way to use it, since you can then toggle it on off in conjunction with other overlays.

    FlipperFla - Its generally easiest if coords are sent as the areas that are covered are constantly being added to.

    Wish you the best on your project but the LIDAR maps my state provides are very accurate. I know since I have been mining here for over 50 years. Google earth is not accurate due to the fact that they do not upgrade there data every year, floods change the rivers every year, "MY Land Matters" has a better source for current pics of river changes, thanks Clay.

    I agree that mylandmatters is an incredible tool, but for what i generally do google earth cant be beat. I like to be able to make my own maps and add in things like geology overlays, soil survey overlays, topo map overlays, as well as my own data from the field. I have yet to find a program that does those better then google earth and in conjunction with lidar overlays it is an incredibly powerful tool. Here is a recent video i did showing how to lidar can be used in conjunction with google earth and old mining maps so that the old mines can be mapped out in a usable way.

    I just wanted to add....
    I am not minimizing the OP, or his business model in any way...
    unless you are well versed in GE overlays, ArcGIS, LIDAR, or the myriad of other formats, (and groundtruth) it is not very easy to search/gather the information that is available, convert as needed into GE or ArcGIS or GPS format, and provide a valid basemap that a layman would be able to use.

    advanced users...

    As many of us know, adding the data with correlation, from various sources such as the mag, profiler, photomosaics, GPR, and video, into a GIS or GE format takes a bit of horsepower...

    Adding correlated data, such as LIDAR, is certainly of some use...

    I always like to tell people, that for me, without the ability to track where to go, but more important, track where I have been...I am nothing more that a brain-dead bark beetle looking for fresh wood....
