        abstract:  These files contain topographic lidar data collected by the CHARTS system in Saipan, CNMI. This file contains both first and last returns. The data points representing bare earth have been classified as such using TerraScan. Classification values are: Class 1: Unclassified Class 2: Ground
        purpose:  The purpose of this survey is to collect topographic lidar across the island of Saipan to support the production of 2-foot contours.
        credit:  Acknowledgement of the Joint Airborne Lidar Bathymetry Technical Center of Expertise (JALBTCX) would be appreciated in any publications or derived products.

        report:  (DQ_CompletenessCommission)
            evaluationMethodDescription:  These data covered the required survey area with minimal gaps in data coverage except near tops of mountains. These gaps are caused when the ground elevation rises so steeply that the lidar swath (based on maximum scan angles and altitude) from adjacent flight lines no longer overlap. These gaps are at elevations above the maximum required for this project. The data postings are very consistent with nominal posting density of 1.3 meters.

        report:  (DQ_ConceptualConsistency)
            measureDescription:  The data provided in this file were tested against ground truthed data. At these locations the lidar data matched within 0.20 meters, and different flight line data agreed within 0.20 meters.

                description:  These data were collected using the CHARTS system. It is owned by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) and operated through contract. The system collects topographic lidar data at 20kHz and hydrographic data at 3kHz. The system also collects RGB imagery at 1Hz. A CASI-1500 hyperspectral line scanner is integrated with the system as well. Aircraft position, velocity and acceleration information are collected through a combination of Novatel and POS A/V equipment. Raw data are collected and transferred to the office for downloading and processing in SHOALS GCS software. GPS data are processed using POSPac software and the results are combined with the lidar data to produce 3-D positions for each lidar shot. These data are edited using Fledermaus software where anomalous data are removed from the dataset. The edited data are written to the national grid system 1 km tiles using chartsLAS, a program written by NAVO. This program reads data from the original binary format files and produces separate ASCII files for first and last return data. Using a model calculated by NAVO, data were converted from ellipsoid to Mean Sea Level heights using the program datum_shift, written by NAVO. The model file Saipan_Adjustment.fin was used for the corrections. The LAS files output form chartsLAS were read into TerraScan and filters were applied to classify ground points. Points designated as ground are assigned a classification value "2" and all other points are assigned the classification value "1" which represents an unclassified state.

                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 for storage and provisioning purposes within Digital Coast: 1. The data were converted from UTM coordinates to geographic coordinates (WGS84). 2. The LAS georeferencing information was updated to reflect the tidal vertical datum Mean Sea Level (MSL). 3. The LAS headers were updated and sorted by latitude.

                description:  The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) received Lidar data files by ftp. The data received compressed containing LiDAR data from the NOAA Coastal Services Center. The data are currently being served via Digital Coastl at http://www.csc.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/. The data can be used to re-populate the system. The data are provided in LAS format. LAS format is an industry standard for serving LiDAR data. The data are exclusively in geographic coordinates, however, the datums used vary. Most are NAD 83, however some are in ITRF. Vertical systems include both ellipsoid (ITRF and NAD 83) and NAVD 88. For NAVD 88 values, Geiod 03 is primarily used; however, data received in NAVD 88 prior to 2003 was processed using Geoid 99.
