This imagery dataset consists of 3-meter resolution, lidar-derived imagery of the Allentown 30 x 60 minute quadrangle in Pennsylvania and part of New Jersey. It also covers part of the Delaware River Basin. The source data used to construct this imagery consists of 1-meter and 2-meter resolution Lidar-derived digital elevation models (DEMs). The lidar source data were compiled from different acquisitions published between 2010 and 2019 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Pennsylvania Spatial Data Access (PASDA). The data were processed using geographic information systems (GIS) software. The data is projected in North America Datum (NAD) UTM Zone 18 North. This representation illustrates the terrain as a hillshade with contrast adjusted to highlight local relief according to a topographic position index (TPI) calculation.
