I don't know any publicly available real-world LIDAR data, though I  
know Velodyne has some pretty nice datasets they were passing about  
fairly freely to DARPA Urban Challenge teams. Their sensor is a 360  
degree, ~1 million points/second sensor, so it produces some beautiful  
point clouds of real world scenes.
