Quarry park

These maps, courtesy of the Indiana Geological and Water Survey (IGWS), show an area northwest of Bloomington at the interchange of I-69 and State Road 46. The proposed property for Quarry in the Uplands limestone heritage park is north and west of the highways. The left image is a historic quarry map of the area from 1931. The middle image is the same area using LiDAR topography. In the right image, an IGWS cartographer draped the historic map over the LiDAR map. The National Ocean Service says LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is 'a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth.' | Images courtesy of the Indiana Geological and Water Survey
