Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) factsheets


Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data is an optical remote sensing technology that provides extremely accurate, high resolution elevation data.

Vanuatu LiDAR Factsheet
The topographic and bathymetric LiDAR survey for Vanuatu included high priority areas of Efate, Malekula and Espiritu Santo, as well as some of the smaller islands nearby. Airborne surveys flown between September and November 2012 captured the data for Efate and Malekula Islands. The survey for Espiritu Santo, which was initially delayed due to poor weather conditions, was completed in May 2013.

Papua New Guinea LiDAR Factsheet
The topographic LiDAR for Papua New Guinea (PNG) was captured via airborne surveys flown between 5 May and 13 July 2012. It included the four towns of Vanimo, Wewak, Madang and Lae, as well as the connecting coastal strips. The Papua New Guinea (PNG) survey covered 1066km of coastline. The total area of the topographic survey for the PNG town sites was 629km2. Port Moresby being located on the south east of the mainland was not covered by this survey.
