Good morning,

I’m very pleased to release the 3DEP lidar factsheet for the great State of Nevada (attached). Thanks go to many individuals across the state who have led the charge for lidar knowledge and coordination. Special thanks to the Nevada State Geologists, Jon Price and Jim Faulds, for sponsoring lidar requirements gathering over the past 5 years, NBMG staff, in particular Seth Dee for his contributions, the NGIS board for lidar strategic planning efforts, and many others.

Also, on the lidar front, see the press release below for the summary of the first round BAA awards in 2015

Next up—state meetings! We will be hosting 1 or 2 public meetings in Nevada to further information sharing about the 3DEP program and the next opportunity for proposals. Announcements for timing and places will be forthcoming.

More information about the 3DEP program can be found at

The following USGS online publication was approved for release and has been made available to the public.
