Manitowoc County recently created elevation surfaces from the LiDAR data collected through the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). The surfaces can be viewed using two ArcGIS Online apps on the Manitowoc County website: www.manitowocmaps.info. Go to the Soil & Water Conservation Department section of the “Map Gallery.”
The 3D LiDAR Explorer application displays elevations with a three to one vertical exaggeration to emphasize minor changes in topography. In navigation mode, users can pan and rotate the landscape elevation model in any direction. The 3D LiDAR Analyzer application has a measuring tool that allows for vertical measurements of the surface model. Multiple overlay options including 2 ft. contour lines, slope ranges, and tax parcels are provided in the 3D LiDAR Analyzer.
