USGS CLICK Website Ceasing Operations

On October 1, 2011, the USGS CLICK (Center for LIDAR Information, Coordination and Knowledge) website will cease all operations except for offline archiving of LiDAR point cloud data provided to the USGS.

On October 1, 2011, the USGS CLICK (Center for LIDAR Information, Coordination and Knowledge) website will cease all operations except for offline archiving of LiDAR point cloud data provided to the USGS. All other functions of CLICK, including the bulletin board, data viewer and download, links to other web sites and presentations,and the CLICK Twitter feed, will be shut down. The lidar@usgs.gov email is expected to remain operational for now.

According to an email issued by the CLICK staff, the move is being made "to guarantee that in our limited funding environment all lidar point cloud data that we have been entrusted with does not disappear, but is at least kept on life support until hopefully a new lidar program can take over what we started five years ago. ...We aren't sure what our future holds, but we know that lidar technology in all its forms has enough momentum that it will succeed even without CLICK's help."

UPDATE from CLICK: "We are pleased to announce that we have secured funding to keep CLICK up and running until January 1, 2012. At that point in time we hope to have an approved comprehensive plan to maintain and improve upon this kind of lidar coordination, information and data provision as a fully operational program. We thank you all for your concern and support, and hope we can keep providing these services well into the future."
