Forwarded reminder from Ramon Arrowsmith, Arizona State:

We want to remind you about the availability of the El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake (4 April 2010) Rupture LiDAR Scan from www.opentopography.org: These data cover the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake (4 April 2010) rupture belt and nearby portions of the Laguna Salada fault, Sierras La Cucupa and El Mayor, and Colorado River Delta. They were gathered by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping at the request of Michael Oskin (UC Davis) and Ramon Arrowsmith (Arizona State University) in collaboration with Alejandro Hinojosa and John Fletcher of CICESE. The acquisition of these data was supported by a RAPID grant from the National Science Foundation’s EarthScope Program and Office of International Science and Education, with additional support from the Southern California Earthquake Center.

They are really quite spectacular. You can download networked linked kmzs to view the hillshades in Google Earth to start playing with them. The quickest way to get at them is through this blog posting:
