        abstract:  The NOAA Coastal Services Center manages and distributes lidar data for the coastal United States, including territorial possessions via the Digital Coast Data Access Viewer web-mapping application. The data span from the mid-1990's to the present and were collected using several different sensors. The collection includes data from topographic and bathymetric lidar sensors. Data are available for shoreline strips to full county coverage and larger. The products have been delivered to the CSC in various formats, projections, datums, and units. Once received, the data are reviewed, checked for errors, and standardized in a single format, projection, and datum. The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center serves as the long-term archive of these data.
        purpose:  These topographic/bathymetric lidar data are made available to the public and coastal management community for a wide variety of uses, such as morphologic change analyses, inundation mapping, habitat classification, and visualization. NOTE: These data are NOT to be used for navigation.
