2006 USACE St. Louis District/USDA NRCS Lidar: Pine County, Minnesota
This kmz file shows the extent of coverage for the 2006 USACE/NRCS Pine County, MN
lidar data set.
This Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) LAS dataset is a topographic survey conducted
for the St. Louis District of the Army Corps of Engineers and the US Department of
Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) of Pine County, Minnesota.
The data were collected October 25 - November 4, 2006. The data cover approximately
1435 square miles and were collected at an average of 3 meters point spacing. The
LAS points in this data set are classified as unclassified and ground.

| Processing Steps
- Lidar data collected and processed by Sanborn Map Company. No collection or processing
- The NOAA Coastal Services Center (CSC) received files in LAS format. The files contained
LiDAR intensity and elevation measurements. CSC performed the following processing
on the data to make it available within Digital Coast: 1. The data were converted
from UTM, Zone 15 coordinates to geographic coordinates. 2. The data were converted
from NAVD88 heights to ellipsoid heights using Geoid03. 3. The LAS header fields were
sorted by latitude and updated.
- 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
