|This metadata record describes the topographic mapping of Hancock and Jackson Counties,
Mississippi during 2005. Using a combination of laser rangefinding, GPS positioning
and inertial measurement technologies; LIDAR instruments are able to make highly detailed
Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) of the earth’s terrain, man-made structures and vegetation.

points. Multiple returns were recorded for each pulse in addition to an intensity
value using a Leica ALS-50 Aerial Lidar Sensor.
