No, That’s Not Smoke – It’s a Superneato LiDAR Image

Light-detection and ranging (LiDAR) remote sensing image of the Willamette River

Light-detection and ranging (LiDAR) remote sensing image of the Willamette River from the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries.

This is a screenshot from a 15 April 2013 The Oregonian article, which notes that “This imagery was featured in the North American Cartographic Information Society’s first Atlas of Design.” This superneato LiDAR (see caption for more information) image shows a section of the Willamette River, which flows throw central Oregon, USA. You can buy this poster at Nature of the Northwest.
