        report:  (DQ_AbsoluteExternalPositionalAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  68.2% of laser returns are accurate to 1.0 feet. This is assessed by the laser manufacturer and is a product of flying height (1/3000th of flying height).
            result: (missing)
        report:  (DQ_AbsoluteExternalPositionalAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Vertical Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  The islands of Oahu, Kauai, and Hawaii were tested and found to have the following accuracies. Kauai LiDAR dataset tested .98ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in open terrain, based on open terrain RMSEz (.50ft) x 1.9600; tested .88ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in all land cover categories combined, based on consolidated RMSEz (.45ft) x 1.9600. Oahu LiDAR dataset tested .69ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in open terrain, based on open terrain RMSEz (.35ft) x 1.9600; tested .73ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in all land cover categories combined, based on consolidated RMSEz (.37ft) x 1.9600. Hawaii LiDAR dataset tested .51ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in open terrain, based on open terrain RMSEz (.26ft) x 1.9600; tested .69ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in all land cover categories combined, based on consolidated RMSEz (.35ft) x 1.9600. Independent accuracy testing was performed by Dewberry & Davis using 80 high accuracy quality control checkpoints distributed throughout the project in four major land cover types (open terrain, weeds/crops, forest, urban). Dewberry used testing procedures consistent with those specified in the National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy (NSSDA) as well as LiDAR accuracy testing guidelines and specifications published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), National Digital Elevation Program (NDEP), and American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS).

                description:  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.

                description:  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 format. 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 of 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 to the ellipsoid (either GRS80 or ITRF94), allowing for the ability to apply the most up to date geoid model when transforming to orthometric heights.
