Make Your Own Lidar Maps For Gold Prospecting.

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, been awhile since i posted last.  But here is a video i did that goes through and shows you how to make lidar maps from the available free lidar data, using free programs.  Unfortunately the lidar data is not available everywhere and there are certain file types that the free programs cannot work with.  But for areas that have good data available, lidar maps are amazing for scoping out an area before ever setting boots on the ground.  

I am by no means an expert and others on here like Clay Diggins are very knowledgeable on the subject.  

Here are some previous posts on the subject:

For those who dont want to delve into figuring out how to make the maps, I still make them on request as well.  


Thanks for watching, hope yall enjoy!
