2001 North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program (NCFMP) Lidar: Phase 1A (Neuse, Pasquotank, Tar-Pamlico, White Oak River Basins)
This kmz file shows the extent of coverage for the 2001 North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program Phase 1A lidar data set.
This airborne LiDAR terrain mapping data was acquired January through March 2001. The data were collected for the floodplain mapping program for the state of North Carolina. The data were collected for the state in three phases: 1, 2, and 3. This metadata record describes that data that were in phase 1 of collection and fall within the Neuse, Pasquotank, Tar-Pamlico, and White Oak River Basins in central and eastern North Carolina. This area consists of 33 counties which are listed below in the Place Keywords field. The data were received by the NOAA Coastal Services Center from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Center for Lidar Coordination and Knowledge (CLICK). For data storage and Digital Coast provisioning purposes, the CSC converted the data to geographic coordinates and ellipsoid (Geoid99) elevations. The data are unclassified.

|Data Presentation Form:||
|Dataset Progress Status||Complete|
|Data Update Frequency:||Unknown|
|Purpose:||These data were collected and derived by the North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program (www.ncfloodmaps.com) as part of its effort to modernize FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) statewide. Although created for specific use in the engineering aspects of floodplain delineation, the data were also developed to address the elevation data requirements of the broader geospatial data user community. The North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program was established in response to the extensive damage caused by Hurricane Floyd in 1999.|
