2007 JALBTCX Hawaii Lidar: North Coasts of Hawaii (Big Island), Kauai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu
The data contained in these files contain topographic data collected by the CHARTS system along the northern coast of Hawaii (Big Island), Kauai, Maui, Molokai, and Oahu in the state of Hawaii. The data were collected on the following dates: Hawaii (Big Island): 20070123-20070210 Kauai: 20070112-20070210 Maui: 20070111-20070127 Molokai: 20070111-20070127 Oahu: 20070112-20070210 The data points representing bare earth have been classified as such using TerraScan with results provided in the classified las files. Classification value "1" means "Unclassified" and a value "2" means "Ground." The data were collected and processed in geographic coordinates and ellipsoid heights. The positions are relative to NAD83 HARN in decimal degrees of longitude and latitude. The heights were converted from ellipsoid to geoid (NAVD88) heights using the Geoid03 model with the results in meters. These heights were then adjusted to Mean Sea Level. The NOAA Coastal Services Center left the data in the tidal vertical datum and the Geotiff tags were updated to reflect this datum. No vertical transforms will be performed on this data during provisioning.

|Purpose:||The purpose of the 2007 Hawaii survey, in general, was to collect both bathymetric and topographic lidar along the northern coastline of the Hawaiian Islands. Topographic data were required between the zero and 15 meter contours, nominal, for the northern coastline of the islands of Hawaii (Big Island), Kauai, Maui, Molokai, and Oahu. Bathymetric Lidar data collection was attempted in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, to fill-in the data gaps between the shoreline and the previously collected SHOALS data. Bathymetric Lidar data were collected on the island of Hawaii from Honolii Stream south along the shoreline to the existing SHOALS data. The data were to be collected from the land water interface seaward to a depth of 40 meters or laser extinction, whichever comes first. These data were collected for Hawaii State Civil Defense for tsunami mapping purposes. The manager for this project was Milton Yoshimoto (808) 438-2250.|
