LiDAR capture and floor level database (WP2)

Overview

The $6 million LiDAR capture and floor level database (WP2) is part of the Flood Risk Management Program (FRMP) - a component of the jointly funded Australian and Queensland Government (50:50) 2021-22 Rainfall and Flooding - Exceptional circumstances Category C and D funding package approved under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA). The LiDAR capture and floor level database (WP2) involves prioritisation of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) capture extents, including procurement of LiDAR and post-processing services for terrain modelling, building footprints and development of a flood level database.

Objectives

The LiDAR capture and floor level database (WP2) aims to capture LiDAR across areas to align with identified needs for further technical investigation, and, identification of inadequacies of existing LiDAR data sets in any of the following ways:

  • insufficient definition
  • insufficient accuracy
  • insufficient coverage
  • age of existing LiDAR datasets.

Information in regard to existing LiDAR datasets will be collected from councils via the application process undertaken for WP3.

QRA will collaborate with the Department of Resources to guide prioritisation of LiDAR capture
