1 m LiDAR posting image of the Salmon Falls Landslide southwest of
Twin Falls, ID courtesy of Nancy Glenn at Idaho State University, Boise.
The image is comprised of 13 million data points, which allowed a vertical
resolution of 15 cm over a slide area of 0.2 square kilometers.  This is about
100X the resolution of a conventional 10 m DEM.
