LiDAR Project Home Page

The 2021 Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) Mobile LiDAR Project commissioned data collection of the Kansas State Highway System using vehicle-based LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) and photography. Following collection, these data were used to extract a list of deliverable geographic information systems (GIS) roadway asset datasets according to KDOT's specifications.

KDOT selected WSP USA and their partner, Cyclomedia, to conduct the data collection and extraction. Data collection began on March 2nd, 2021, and ended on April 29th, 2021. KDOT received the requested GIS datasets following the completion of data extraction and quality control in October 2021.

This site is devoted to making the GIS data extracts from the 2021 project available to KDOT staff and beyond. You can explore all the data in one place on KanPlan using the following link: KDOT Mobile LiDAR Project Web Map.
