Abstract:

These files contain topographic lidar data collected by the CHARTS system in Saipan, CNMI. This file contains both first and last

returns. The data points representing bare earth have been classified as such using TerraScan. Classification values are:

Class 1: Unclassified

Class 2: Ground

Purpose:

The purpose of this survey is to collect topographic lidar across the island of Saipan to support the production of 2-foot contours.

Notes:

10704

Supplemental Information:

This data set was collected for the CNMI Coastal Resources Management Office, CNMI Department of Public Works, and the CNMI Emergency Management

Office. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Honolulu District project manager was Milton Yoshimoto (contact number: 808-438-2250).

Data Quality

Accuracy:

These data are not attributed. | Quantitative Value: N/A | Quantitative Test Explanation: These data are not attributed.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

The data positions were obtained using post processed KGPS methods. The horizontal accuracy of the data is better than +/- 0.75m.; Quantitative Value: 0.75 meters, Test that produced the value: 1 Sigma

Vertical Positional Accuracy:

The data positions were obtained using post processed KGPS methods. The vertical accuracy of the data is better than +/- 0.20m.; Quantitative Value: 0.20 meters, Test that produced the value: 1 Sigma

Completeness Report:

These data covered the required survey area with minimal gaps in data coverage except near tops of mountains. These gaps are caused when the ground

elevation rises so steeply that the lidar swath (based on maximum scan angles and altitude) from adjacent flight lines no longer overlap. These gaps

are at elevations above the maximum required for this project. The data postings are very consistent with nominal posting density of 1.3 meters.

Conceptual Consistency:

The data provided in this file were tested against ground truthed data. At these locations the lidar data matched within 0.20 meters, and different

flight line data agreed within 0.20 meters.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 1139023
Description:

These data were collected using the CHARTS system. It is owned by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) and operated through contract.

The system collects topographic lidar data at 20kHz and hydrographic data at 3kHz. The system also collects RGB imagery at 1Hz.

A CASI-1500 hyperspectral line scanner is integrated with the system as well. Aircraft position, velocity and acceleration information are

collected through a combination of Novatel and POS A/V equipment. Raw data are collected and transferred to the office for downloading and

processing in SHOALS GCS software. GPS data are processed using POSPac software and the results are combined with the lidar data to produce 3-D

positions for each lidar shot. These data are edited using Fledermaus software where anomalous data are removed from the dataset. The edited data

are written to the national grid system 1 km tiles using chartsLAS, a program written by NAVO. This program reads data from the original binary

format files and produces separate ASCII files for first and last return data. Using a model calculated by NAVO, data were converted from

ellipsoid to Mean Sea Level heights using the program datum_shift, written by NAVO. The model file Saipan_Adjustment.fin was used for

the corrections. The LAS files output form chartsLAS were read into TerraScan and filters were applied to classify ground points. Points designated

as ground are assigned a classification value "2" and all other points are assigned the classification value "1" which represents an unclassified

state.

Process Step 2

CC ID: 1139024
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 for storage and provisioning purposes within Digital Coast:

1. The data were converted from UTM coordinates to geographic coordinates (WGS84).

2. The LAS georeferencing information was updated to reflect the tidal vertical datum Mean Sea Level (MSL).

3. The LAS headers were updated and sorted by latitude.
