Q.  Was there a change in streaming LF data?

Yes. With the release of LF's new viewer in late March 2022, LF data access with ArcGRID, LFDAT, and Non-ESRI scripting was archived. Note Non-ESRI scripting was removed July 1, 2022. However, the LF Program developed a new method to access its products called the LF Product Service (LFPS). LFPS is a RESTful Application Programming Interface (API) that allows users to request and download a LF products file, an output file incorporating the requested product layers via a multiband raster, through an API using HTTPS requests. Features of the LFPS include:


Users may experience intermittent service Thursday evenings due to routine maintenance.
The LF Map Viewer (DDS) will be down every 3rd Wednesday from 8 am - 10:00 am (CDT) for routine maintenance.
To view and print a PDF you must obtain and install the Acrobat® Reader, available at no charge from Adobe Systems.
