        abstract:  LiDAR data collection was performed utilizing a Leica ALS-50 sensor, collecting multiple return x, y, and z data as well as intensity data. LiDAR data was processed to achieve a bare ground surface, and was delivered in LAS format. Classified LAS data was also used as a base for collection of hydro features, delivered in MicroStation v8 format. The dates of collection are: 1. JASPER COUNTY (full county): 20061227 to 20070216 2. COLLETON COUNTY (full county: 20070216 to 20070323 3. CHARLESTON COUNTY (Partial County): 20070222 to 20070223
        purpose:  Lidar data was acquired for Charleston (Partial County), Jasper (full county) and Colleton (full county) Counties, SC as part of a collaborative effort by state agencies, FEMA and the NOAA Coastal Services Center to provide high-resolution topographic data for floodplain mapping and other uses.

                description:  Raw LiDAR data (collected as Process Step 1) was processed to create a bare ground surface. Process included calibration of LiDAR data to remove systematic errors (utilizing Leica's ALS Processor software), adjustment of elevation data to control positions (utilizing TerraScan software for control comparisons and adjustments), and both automatic and manual editing to correctly classify ground and non-ground data (utilizing TerraScan and TerraModeler software). In addition, QC steps were performed before and after processing. QC steps included line-to-line vertical comparisons and coverage checks, and were performed with TerraScan and GeoCue software.

                description:  Following bare ground surface creation (Process Step 2),Photo Science utilized the resulting dataset as a source for collection of hydrographic features, including double-line drains, single-line drains, and bodies of water. Hydro features were collected from bare ground surface models in MicroStation v8 software. After collection was complete, Photo Science adjusted elevation of all hydro features to ensure proper monotonicity using FME and proprietary software.

                description:  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 the Digital Coast: 1. The data were converted from UTM (Zone 17) coordinates to geographic coordinates. 2. The data were converted from orthometric elevations (NAVD88) to ellipsoidal heights using Geoid 03. 3. The LAS data were sorted by latitude and the headers were updated. 4. 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.
