LIDAR or Point Cloud for France ?

Hi, I seem to be having difficulty tracking down a public source for Paris and it's surrounding regions.

I found this website :

http://ids.equipex-geosud.fr/web/guest/france

I cannot fathom out what is required to register, seems like I've got to go through a ridiculously convoluted application to get the data.

Does anyone know an easier route ? I've tried contacting the site numerous times but have received no response.

I make tracks for Asseto Corsa, Google earth STRM just isn't detailed enough, I need point cloud or LIDAR.

...all non profit btw.

I can find point clouds for the rest of the world easy enough, why it's so difficult for France is beyond me.

appreciate any advice.

tia.

    The owner of the website has got back to me and simply states :

    "Hi, you can’t have an access to this data, registration is only for French state service and research center."

    I was building the street course taken in the film C'etait un Rendezvous:











    It would be a shame not to be able to finish it but with such along course and no accurate elevation data it's impossible to work on.

    If anyone has advice or insight on how I can get hold of lidar for this area it would be a great help.

    Here's the .kml for the track.


    Hope someone can help, I don't know why I can find public point cloud data for just about every other region in the world except France.

    ¯\\\_(ツ)_/¯
