Statewide GIS Outreach - 50 States Initiative

South Carolina was fortunate to be awarded a CAP Grant in 2008 for the 50 States Initiative Program. The goal of the project was a strategic plan and business plan that we could use moving forward within the state. Click here to learn more.

Statewide LiDAR

Project The South Carolina LiDAR Consortium is currently working on a statewide LiDAR project with the assistance of federal, state and local resources. The project began in 2007, and is nearly complete for the acquisition process. After acquisition, the LiDAR data must be QA/QC'd and approved for release by USGS.

Orthophoto Status

South Carolina has statewide coverage of orthophotos. This data is typically (although not always) contracted by the county. Also, counties often utilize South Carolina's Geodetic Survey, during the process. Most often, when Geodetic Survey assists, it is by providing a product quality review in order to validate spatial accuracy with ground verification as well as optical quality. In addition, they have developed a template for standardized specifications when an organization is planning to have orthos flown. This template is available upon request.

 

 

Cadastral Status

A majority of South Carolina's counties have developed cadastral data. This data, like the orthophotos, is typically developed and maintained at the county level. The last year or two have seen significant increases toward completion of the remaining counties.
