As LiDAR becomes more prevalent in the GIS arena, various product derivatives are being offered based on that technology. This presentation will focus on development of contour maps using LiDAR. Deliverables can be developed in several levels beginning with a fully automated product (least costly) thru a cartographically enhanced product (highest quality). The various costs vs. benefits of each level will be explained so that users can better understand what product best fits their needs and budget.
