2008 NOAA/NGS Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping (IOCM) LIDAR: Kenai Peninsula Alaska
These data were collected by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration National Geodetic Survey Remote Sensing Division using an OPTECH ALTM system. The data includes topographic data in an LAS format file. The data was collected 31 July - 1 August 2008 on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska. It has been processed to bare earth using only an automated routine - additional manual editing is required for localized use. The data covers portions of the Outer and Inner Kachemak Bay coastline from Point Anchor to Homer and along the coast into the head of the bay. The data falls in the Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and includes the Fox River Flats Critical Habitat Areas.

Data include all lidar returns (first, second, third, and last) and have been classified to bare earth by the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) using only automated processes. "Outliers" or "false returns" (e.g., returns from birds, atmospheric particles, and/or system noise) may be present in the data.
|Purpose:||This lidar was acquired by the NOAA Remote Sensing Division to support NOAA's IOCM initiative. It is not intended for mapping, charting or navigation. In addition, it will be used for ongoing research efforts for testing and developing standards for airborne lidar.|
