WSI has provided data for numerous projects focused on evaluating the geomorphology and geotechnical features of the Earth's surface. This application has especially gained momentum as interest has increased in the usefulness of LiDAR to detect natural hazards to human safety. Our data has been used to update FEMA floodplain hazard maps; evaluate sediment transport and loading; conduct volumetric change detection analysis; detect fault lines and other seismographic features; study the morphology of volcanoes; detect historic and potential land slides; assess geomorphic changes/responses to dam removal and various other applications for changing topographies throughout the continent. Because ground detection improves with high resolution LiDAR data, these detailed surface features are often more visible. WSI's data has supported several geological studies confirming the presences of faults previously undetermined with other data sources. Recent examples include Lake Tahoe Basin study, New Madrid fault, Mt. Hood fault, and a coastal CA study. WSI data has also been used to study lava flows, volcanoes, glaciers, landslides, and Oregon's infamous "Pits of Mystery".
