2002 Upper Texas Coast Lidar Point Data, Gulf of Mexico Shoreline in the Northeast 3.75-Minute Quadrant of the Lake Como 7.5-Minute Quadrangle: Post Fay Survey
This data set contains elevation data derived from a lidar survey approximately 300m wide of the Gulf of Mexico shoreline in the Northeast Lake Como quarter-quadrangle on Galveston Island Texas. The geographic extent of the data set is equivalent to the quarter-quadrangle plus 30 meters of overedge. The data is created by combining data collected using an Optech Inc. Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (ALTM) 1225 in combination with geodetic quality Global Positioning System (GPS) airborne and ground-based receivers. The Bureau of Economic Geology, the University of Texas at Austin owns and operates an ALTM 1225 system (serial number 99d118). This system is installed in a single engine Cessna 206 (tail number N4589U) owned and operated by the Texas State Aircraft Pooling Board. The lidar data described by this document was collected on 18 September 2002 (26102) between 20:34 and 00:08 UTC (actual data collection). Conditions on that day were low clouds at 335m Above Ground Level (AGL), haze, and occasional showers. 99d118 instrument settings for this flight were; laser pulse rate: 25kHz, scanner rate: 26Hz, scan angle: +/-20deg, beam divergence: wide, altitude: 300-490m AGL, and ground speed: 70-106kts. Three GPS base stations, 2 Ashtech and 1 Trimble 4000SSI receivers (backup), were operating during the survey. The three base stations were at the following locations: one 3.5km south of San Luis Pass, one at the Scholes International Airport Galveston, and one on the seawall at Rollover Pass. This data set consists of 1687100 records of x,y, and z values. The data set was generated from a larger data set and includes all valid points within the requested geographic bounds.

Use Limitation
These data depict the elevations at the time of the survey and are only accurate for that time. Users should be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions. Users should not use this data for critical applications without a full awareness of its limitations. Any conclusions drawn from analysis of this information are not the responsibility of NOAA or any of its partners. These data are NOT to be used for navigational purposes.
