The University of Maryland has worked closely with the Maryland Department of the Environment, a Cooperating Technical Partner, to create hydrologic flood models by using Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data collected by the university. The university was asked to assess and evaluate how useful the data could be in the creation of the DFIRMs, and assigned students to improve data layers in the field by verifying the presence of structures that were obstructing or limiting the data, and to obtain other data layers such as State Highway GIS. Benefits of this project included the students’ exposure to both the theory and application of these tools and the opportunity to explore career possibilities.
