2007 Northwest Water Manangement District Lidar: 5 Counties (Jackson, Calhoun, Washington, Liberty, Holmes)
This kmz file shows the extent of coverage for the 2007 NWFWMD "5 Counties" lidar data set.
LIDAR-derived binary (.las) files containing points classified as bare-earth and canopy (first return) were produced for the 2007/2008 Northwest Florida Water Management District - 5 Counties (Calhoun, Washington, Jackson, Liberty, Holmes), Florida lidar mapping project. ESRI GRIDs of bare earth points are also provided. The files were provided in a scheme of FDEM-derived 5,000 x 5,000 foot (1500 x 1500 meter) tiles. Horizontal mapping units are in UTM meters, vertical mapping units are in U.S. survey feet. The total mapping area covers approximately 2102 square miles.

|Dataset Progress Status||Complete|
|Data Update Frequency:||As needed|
Lidar points are attributed with the following classifications: 1 - Unclassified 2 - Ground (bare earth) Lidar intensity values range from 0-255. Lidar return values range from 1-3. Flight line numbers range from 1-19. All deliverables meet specifications in contract. LAS Files meet ASPRS Classification Standards.
|Purpose:||The purpose of the project is to produce accurate, high-resolution data for planning, analysis, and for use with other datasets. Merrick obtained LiDAR data over approximately 2,102 square miles covering all or portions of 5-Counties in Florida. The LiDAR data has been processed to result in a data set that is suitable for the future generation of 2-foot contours. These data will be used to support FEMA's Map Modernization Program through the creation of high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs). These DEMs support a variety of applications, including improved floodplain delineation, hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, hazard mapping as well as other planning activities.|
