    If you’re looking for a topic to blog about (or even just mention), I’d appreciate it if would call attention to the Wikipedia pages about LiDAR, and especially the page I started to compile all known US counties (and even states) with fully available, high resolution (~1-2m posting) LiDAR data. [This page.]

    My hunch is that those readers of your blog who don’t already know about this page will find it of interest, and of course, I also hope that if any of your readers know of counties that should be listed they’ll either add them directly to the page or will speak up to ask someone else to add them.

    One other topic to consider: near-ground (within 2 meters) vegetative classification, especially using open source or readily available software. It’s an interesting topic that like many “extractive” abilities seems to be coming along nicely and be of increasing use to many folks.
