All processing of data requests has been suspended.

To obtain elevation products, download, read, and fill out the NJGIN LiDAR Order Form. Once the form is completed, print it out and include it along with an external hard drive on which the data will be loaded. Mailing and/or drop off/pick up instructions are on the form. For security purposeos, all external hard drives received that are not completely empty with the disk newly reformatted will be returned unprocessed. Data will be provided at the full spatial extent (i.e. no clipping). Requests cannot be modified once they are received by NJOGIS.

Requesters may not wait on site. Turn around time will depend on the number of requests and other work load at NJOGIS; no specific time can be guaranteed. NJOGIS makes every effort to fulfill the requests as quickly as possible.
