Title: 2005 US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Post-Hurricane Katrina LiDAR: Mississippi and Western Alabama
Short Name: postkat2005_m28_metadata
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2006-10-16
Abstract:

LiDAR data was acquired for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District in September-October

2005 along the coastline of Hancock, Harrison, Jackson counties in Mississippi and Mobile County in Alabama

from the land water interface (shoreline) to the north Right of Way of Interstate-10. The LiDAR DEM was delivered as

first return, last return, bare earth, and water delivery in LAS format. Contract Number: W91278-04-D-0001/0003 EN.

Project Number: C-05-054.

Contractor: R&M Consultants, Inc., Anchorage, AK. Subcontractor: Woolpert, Inc., Dayton, OH.

Data Quality

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

Horizontal accuracy is better than 0.45 meters according to system specification and calibration. No field check

on horizontal accuracy has been performed.

Vertical Positional Accuracy:

Vertical accuracy of 15 centimeters (NSSDA RMSEZ) in flat and open areas (i.e. low grass, plowed fields, lawn, golf

courses).

; Quantitative Value: 0.076 meters, Test that produced the value:

Tested vertical accuracy is 7.6 cm in open terrain. 86 survey control points spreading all over the project

area have been used as QC points to check LiDAR vertical accuracy.

Completeness Measure:

Cloud Cover: 0

Completeness Report:

Data was checked to make sure a full coverage of project area at data acquisition phase. One flight line was reflown.

The points have better than one meter post spacing with overlap removed.

Conceptual Consistency:

Features detected in LiDAR points are consistent with features on LiDAR intensity images.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 1135284
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 las files were sorted by latitude and the las header fields were updated.
