| Processing Steps
- Lidar data were collected by Airborne 1 under subcontract to URS by FEMA. Data were
checked for quality by Dewberry and Davis.
- Lidar data were processed by Coastal Services Center for incorporation into the Digital
Coast. Coordinates were converted to geographic latitude and longitude using the General
Cartographic Transform Program algorithms. Elevations were converted from orthometric
heights to heights on the NAD83 ellipsoid using the NGS GEOID03 model. Height units
were converted to meters from feet. The data were converted to LAZ format.
- The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) received lidar data files via ftp
transfer from the NOAA Coastal Services Center. The data are currently
being served via NOAA CSC Digital Coast at http://www.csc.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/.
The data can be used to re-populate the system. The data are archived in LAS or LAZ
The LAS format is an industry standard for LiDAR data developed by the American Society
of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS); LAZ is a loseless compressed version
LAS developed by Martin Isenburg (http://www.laszip.org/). The data are exclusively
in geographic coordinates (either NAD83 or ITRF94). The data are referenced vertically
the ellipsoid (either GRS80 or ITRF94), allowing for the ability to apply the most
up to date geoid model when transforming to orthometric heights.
