This layer contains the DEM for LiDAR data from the Kaikoura area captured in 2012.
The DSM is available as layer Canterbury - Kaikoura Lidar 1m DSM (2012).
The index tiles are available as layer Canterbury - Kaikoura Lidar Index Tiles (2012).
The LAS point cloud and vendor project reports are available from OpenTopography.
Lidar was captured for Environment Canterbury Regional Council by Aerial Surveys in 2012. Note that this capture was prior to the significant vertical and horizontal displacements from the 2016 Kaikoura earthquakes. The datasets were generated by Aerial Surveys and their subcontractors. The survey area includes the Kaikoura township area and adjacent coastal strips. Data management and distribution is by Land Information New Zealand.
