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
This data set contains ortho-rectified mosaic tiles, created by Fugro in support of the national shoreline mapping program for NOAA NGS. The source imagery was acquired using an ADS100 pushbroom camera. The original images were acquired at a higher resolution to support the final ortho-rectified mosaic.
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.)

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.
(describe or provide URL of description):
Fugro collected ADS derived orthos in December 2018 for the TX1803-TB-C AOI with 30cm GSD. Data was collected when environmental conditions meet the criteria specified. Digital imaging shall not be conducted when clouds or cloud shadow obscure the land-water interface or features of navigational significance in the scene. The landwater interface shall not be obscured by snow, ice, smoke, haze, etc. Storm systems and events (e.g. hurricanes, northeasters, and frontal boundaries) that may cause an increase in water levels, tidal heights, and wave activity shall be avoided. Efforts to avoid sun glare shall be taken. Time of day for digital camera imagery is determined by the sun angle which shall not be less than 25 degrees above the horizon at the time of exposure. If imagery is collected between the months of November and February, the sun angle requirement shall not be less the 20 degrees. This data was collected in 22 planned lines, 31 altogether with reflights. Lines are presented below as Line Number - Date Acquired - Universal Time Coordinated (Zulu Time) of Line Beginning - Universal Time Coordinated (Zulu Time) of line Ending: 1 - 12/10/18 - 16:26:24 - 16:49:17 2 - 12/10/18 - 19:48:43 - 20:10:26 3 - 12/13/18 - 17:03:08 - 17:16:02 3 - 12/20/18 - 16:06:20 - 16:15:42 4 - 12/13/18 - 17:35:56 - 17:37:37 4 - 12/13/18 - 17:45:16 - 17:54:56 4 - 12/20/18 - 16:21:41 - 16:29:49 5 - 12/13/18 - 17:58:52 - 18:06:40 5 - 12/20/18 - 16:33:24 - 16:41:28 6 - 12/13/18 - 18:11:06 - 18:18:49 6 - 12/20/18 - 16:44:33 - 16:51:21 7 - 12/13/18 - 18:22:40 - 18:30:41 7 - 12/13/18 - 18:35:58 - 18:37:14 7 - 12/20/18 - 16:55:37 - 17:09:27 8 - 12/13/18 - 18:40:13 - 18:47:22 9 - 12/10/18 - 16:08:54 - 16:11:52 10 - 12/10/18 - 15:39:54 - 15:48:44 11 - 12/10/18 - 17:29:37 - 17:35:44 11 - 12/10/18 - 19:03:00 - 19:29:04 12 - 12/04/18 - 16:35:38 - 16:44:17 13 - 12/04/18 - 16:22:42 - 16:30:50 14 - 12/04/18 - 16:50:50 - 16:54:15 15 - 12/04/18 - 16:59:29 - 17:01:15 16 - 12/10/18 - 16:57:30 - 17:25:21 16 - 12/10/18 - 17:38:40 - 17:39:40 17 - 12/10/18 - 15:13:52 - 15:34:39 18 - 12/04/18 - 15:07:27 - 15:11:37 19 - 12/04/18 - 15:17:54 - 15:31:54 20 - 12/04/18 - 15:36:44 - 15:51:41 21 - 12/04/18 - 15:59:03 - 16:02:00 22 - 12/04/18 - 16:05:42 - 16:07:28
- 2019-08-01 00:00:00 - The full resolution aerial imagery was color balanced and mosaicked inside of Inpho’s Orthovista platform. The imagery was radiometrically balanced one flight line to another using the rectified ADS 16-bit 4 band (RGB-IR) imagery. No individual manipulation took place with the near-infrared band to maintain as much band integrity as possible. Once the imagery was processed through Inpho’s workflow Fugro Land imported the Orthovista output into their proprietary image database software and completed any additional image feature cleanup. Fugro Land created a Tone Contrast Curve (TTC) to complete the 16-bit to 8-bit image conversion. The final image format delivered was Stripped TIFs that were geo-referenced and accompanied by TIF World Files.
- Under Fugro’s direction, all surveying activities were performed by Fugro's approved ID/IQ subcontractor Terrasurv, Inc. A total of 20 ground control points to support the lidar collection, along with 35 checkpoints were collected. The National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) was used to provide control for the network. Two Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) were included in the network, as well as thirteen existing NSRS benchmarks. The horizontal datum was the North American Datum of 1983 – NAD83 (2011), epoch 2010.0.

Compliance with the accuracy standard was ensured by the placement of GPS ground control. The following checks were performed. 1. The ground control and airborne GPS data stream were validated through a fully analytical bundle aerotriangulation adjustment in both UTM 14N and UTM15N. The residuals of the adjustment met the required standards for accuracy which are 1 part in 10,000 of the flying height for the horizontal position (X and Y) and 1 part in 9,000 or better of the flying height in elevation (Z). 2. The DTM (Digital Terrain Model) data was checked against the project control. The technician visited and confirmed the accuracy of the project mass points during initial compilation. 3. Any topographic data was checked for edge match, consistency of attribution, and cartographic quality through visual inspection. 4. Digital orthophotography was validated through an inspection of edge matching and visual inspection for image quality.
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.
