Shenendoah Valley lidar data were collected between March 1 and March 9 2011. The data were originally acquired for the USGS.

The nominal posting interval is 1.0 m.

The data are available in two basic formats: (1) DEMs (Erdas Imagine format) and (2) as raw point clouds (in las format).

The data are in tiles. In order to identify the gridded tiles, you should identify the quads from the shape file
Once you have identified the tiles you need, go to the appropriate directory, and select the data you need.

An alternative and more rapid method is to use the WV DEP (TAGIS) geospatial application, which shows lidar holdings across the state of West Virginia, and allows a map-based selection and downloading of individual tiles (once you have zoomed in sufficiently far on the map).
