Data Management Plan
DMP Template v2.0.1 (2015-01-01)Please provide the following information, and submit to the NOAA DM Plan Repository.
Reference to Master DM Plan (if applicable)
As stated in Section IV, Requirement 1.3, DM Plans may be hierarchical. If this DM Plan inherits provisions from a higher-level DM Plan already submitted to the Repository, then this more-specific Plan only needs to provide information that differs from what was provided in the Master DM Plan.
1. General Description of Data to be Managed
The LiDAR data acquisition was executed in 5 sessions, from March 7 to March 9, 2007.
The airborne GPS (ABGPS) base stations supporting the LiDAR acquisition consisted of the bases set up by the flight crews at the Anderson Airport (KAND). Dual Frequency data was logged continuously for the duration of each LiDAR flight mission at a one-second sampling rate or better.
Notes: Only a maximum of 4000 characters will be included.
Notes: Data collection is considered ongoing if a time frame of type "Continuous" exists.
Notes: All time frames from all extent groups are included.
Notes: All geographic areas from all extent groups are included.
(e.g., digital numeric data, imagery, photographs, video, audio, database, tabular data, etc.)
(e.g., satellite, airplane, unmanned aerial system, radar, weather station, moored buoy, research vessel, autonomous underwater vehicle, animal tagging, manual surveys, enforcement activities, numerical model, etc.)
2. Point of Contact for this Data Management Plan (author or maintainer)
Notes: The name of the Person of the most recent Support Role of type "Metadata Contact" is used. The support role must be in effect.
Notes: The name of the Organization of the most recent Support Role of type "Metadata Contact" is used. This field is required if applicable.
3. Responsible Party for Data Management
Program Managers, or their designee, shall be responsible for assuring the proper management of the data produced by their Program. Please indicate the responsible party below.
Notes: The name of the Person of the most recent Support Role of type "Data Steward" is used. The support role must be in effect.
Programs must identify resources within their own budget for managing the data they produce.
5. Data Lineage and Quality
NOAA has issued Information Quality Guidelines for ensuring and maximizing the quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity of information which it disseminates.

- 2007-03-01 00:00:00 - The LiDAR data acquisition was executed in 5 sessions, from March 7 to March 9, 2007. The airborne GPS (ABGPS) base stations supporting the LiDAR acquisition consisted of the bases set up by the flight crews at the Anderson Airport (KAND). Dual Frequency data was logged continuously for the duration of each LiDAR flight mission at a one-second sampling rate or better. The flight plan for LiDAR consisted of parallel flights in a north-south extent across the site. Fifty-four (54) flight lines of LiDAR data were acquired. In this process, Woolpert employed GPS differential processing and Kalman filtering techniques to derive an aircraft trajectory solution at 1-second intervals for each base station within the project limits. Statistics for each solution (base station) were generated and studied for quality. The goal for each solution is to have: maintained satellite lock throughout the session position standard deviation of less than 5 centimeters low ionospheric noise few or no cycle slips a fixed integer ambiguity solution throughout the trajectory a maximum number of satellites for a given constellation a low (3.0 or less) Position Dilution of Precision (PDOP) Often times a solution for a given base station will meet all of the above parameters in certain portions of the trajectory while the other base station might meet the above conditions in different portions of the trajectory solution. In this case, further processing was done to form different combinations of base station solutions and/or satellites to arrive at the optimal trajectory.

- 2007-10-10 00:00:00 - LiDAR QA/QC verification will be provided by SCDNR through their contractor URS Corporation. The complete LiDAR data set for the entire project area was delivered to URS on August 15, 2007. URS conducted a data assessment. URS provided the review comments on October 10, 2007. URS indicated the LiDAR data met the vertical and horizontal accuracy requirements for the project and would not require any additional work.
- 2015-02-21 00:00:00 - The NOAA Office for Coastal Management (OCM) received the files in laz format from SCDNR via an FTP online repository. The files contained lidar elevation and intensity measurements. The data were in State Plane, NAVD88 (orthometric) heights in meters. OCM performed the following processing for data storage and Digital Coast provisioning purposes: 1. The data were converted from state plane coordinates to geographic coordinates. 2. The data were converted from NAVD88 (orthometric) heights in meters to GRS80 (ellipsoid) heights in meters using Geoid 03. 3. The LAS data were sorted by latitude and the headers were updated.

6. Data Documentation
The EDMC Data Documentation Procedural Directive requires that NOAA data be well documented, specifies the use of ISO 19115 and related standards for documentation of new data, and provides links to resources and tools for metadata creation and validation.

7. Data Access
NAO 212-15 states that access to environmental data may only be restricted when distribution is explicitly limited by law, regulation, policy (such as those applicable to personally identifiable information or protected critical infrastructure information or proprietary trade information) or by security requirements. The EDMC Data Access Procedural Directive contains specific guidance, recommends the use of open-standard, interoperable, non-proprietary web services, provides information about resources and tools to enable data access, and includes a Waiver to be submitted to justify any approach other than full, unrestricted public access.
