2006 Florida LiDAR: Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Walton Counties
ESCAMBIA: The Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) LAS dataset is a survey of select areas within Escambia County, Florida. These data were produced for Dewberry and Davis LLC. The Escambia County LiDAR Survey project area consists of approximately 803 square miles. The LiDAR point cloud was flown at a density sufficient to support a maximum final post spacing of 6 feet for unobscured areas. Land Air mapping acquired 110 flightlines between June 21, 2006 and July 18, 2006. The data was divided into 5000’ by 5000’ foot cells that serve as the tiling scheme. The Escambia County LiDAR Survey was collected under the guidance of a Professional Mapper/Surveyor. Dates of Collection: 20060621-20060718 Contractor: Dewberry and Davis, LLC SANTA ROSA: LiDAR data collection was performed utilizing a Leica ALS-50 sensor, collecting multiple return x, y, and z data as well as intensity data. LiDAR data was processed to achieve a bare ground surface. LiDAR data was delivered in LAS format. Dates of Collection: 20060112-20060228 Contractor: Photo Science, Inc. WALTON: LIDAR data is remotely sensed high-resolution elevation data collected by an airborne collection platform. Using a combination of laser range finding, 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. This data of Walton County, Florida, was collected at sub-meter resolution to provide average point spacing of 0.7m for collected points. Up to 5 returns were recorded for each pulse in addition to an intensity value. No data for Eglin AFB, permission to fly over was ever granted. Dates of Collection: 20060710-11, 19-20, 22-23, 26-29, 20060801, 03, 06-07, 13, 15, 17 Contractor: Sanborn

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be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions.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.
