The Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS), collected high-resolution lidar topographic data for swaths of land that would likely be used if new natural gas pipelines were constructed in Alaska. The pipelines would be designed to deliver Alaska North Slope natural gas to out-of-state and Alaska customers. Collection of lidar data was supported by the State of Alaska Gas Pipeline Project Office, the Office of the Federal Coordinator, and the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation.


"Managing and creating spatial analytics from three-dimesnional data requires software that can accurately manage, represent, and analyze its feature information. We found that ArcGIS provided the platform needed to ensure the data is ready."
