Individual LiDAR scan taken from the beach by the base of 36th Avenue. The location of the LiDAR scanner is marked by a white O; the stairs just to the east of 36th Avenue is marked by a white A and the intersection of East Cliff Drive and 36th Avenue is marked by a white B. Note the extremely high resolution of the data, and the scanner's ability to resolve objects as small as telephone and power lines (marked by white C's).
