The mission of the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) is to:

1) Provide research quality airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR) observations to the national research communities.

2) Advance both the technology and the scientific discoveries made possible by LiDAR.

3) Track and evaluation other remote sensing technologies that might complement LiDAR and develop methods for multi-sensor data collection and fusion.

4) Train and educate graduate students with knowledge of airborne mapping to meet the needs of private industry, government agencies and academic institutions.

To gather community input on how well NCALM is accomplishing its mission and to define where future efforts should be directed, NCALM has created a short survey for LiDAR users.  The success and vitality of NCALM depends on community input.  The 10 minutes it will take to complete this survey represents a very real investment in NCALM's future.

Thank you for taking the time to participate in the NCALM LiDAR Survey.
