LiDAR or "Light Detection and Ranging" is an optical remote sensing technology that measures properties of scattered light to find range and/or other information of a distant target. The prevalent method to determine distance to an object or surface is to use laser pulses. Benton County is a partner in the Oregon LiDAR Consortium and will be utilizing LiDAR data for the Riparian and Wetlands project and other County projects.
