AUTHORS: Mike Brouillette, State of Vermont

ABSTRACT: Five years after its humble beginnings in 2011, the Vermont Lidar Initiative (VTLI) has achieved full state lidar coverage (including both available and in-process data) with the help of various state and federal partners throught the USGS Broad Agency Announcement grant under the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). Once the current lidar “collection” is completed in 2017, Vermont will have 80% of its land area covered by Quality Level 2 (QL2) data and the remainder at the QL3 level.While data collection efforts will be ongoing to maintain the “QL2 coverage every 8 years” recommended by the 2012 National Enhanced Elevation Assessment, the VTLI’s primary focus is evolving to embrace a wider range of data dissemination strategies that best serve myriad applications across a broad range of users. In addition to a brief overview of data acquisition and how the dissemination options evolved from data product and file download to the advantages of our new web services, use cases will also be highlighted.The VTLI is managed by the Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI), formerly a public non-profit and now a Division of the State Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD).
