Publication Date: 2008-06-25
Abstract:

These data were collected by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration National Geodetic Survey Remote

Sensing Division using an OPTECH ALTM system. The data includes topographic data in an LAS format file.

Purpose:

This lidar was acquired by the NOAA Remote Sensing Division to support NOAA's IOCM initiative. It is not intended for

mapping, charting or navigation. In addition, it will be used for ongoing research efforts for testing and developing

standards for airborne lidar.

Notes:

10222

Supplemental Information:

Data include all lidar returns (first, second, third, and last) and have not been classified or

filtered to bare earth by the National Geodetic Survey (NGS). "Outliers" or "false returns" (e.g., returns from birds,

atmospheric particles, and/or system noise) may be present in the data.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 1006498
Description:

Data were processed to an initial LAS format using the ALTM DASHMAP software. The Applanix POSPac

software was utilized for GPS and inertial processing, and Terrasolid software for data visualization, 3D editing and

export to final LAS file. Data were processed in NAD83 horizontal and vertical datum.

Process Date/Time: 2008-06-16 00:00:00

Process Step 2

CC ID: 1006499
Description:

The NOAA Office for Coastal Management (OCM) received files in LAS format. The files contained LiDAR intensity

and elevation measurements. OCM performed the following processing on the data to make it available within the LiDAR Data

Retrieval Tool (LDART):

1. The data were converted from UTM coordinates to geographic coordinates.

2. The LAS header fields were sorted by latitude and updated.

3. The data was filtered to eliminate outliers.
