2008 NWFWMD (Northwest Florida Water Management District) Florida LiDAR: Inland Okaloosa County
This Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) LAS dataset is a survey of inland Okaloosa County, Florida not covered in the 2008 Florida Department of Emergency Management LiDAR initiative. The project area consists of approximately 874 square miles, including a buffer of approximately 50 feet along the edges of the project. The project design of the LiDAR data acquisition was developed to support a nominal post spacing of 4.9 feet or 1.5 meters for un-obscured areas. Fugro EarthData, Inc. acquired 49 flight lines in three lifts on February 10, 2008. The data was divided into 5000’ by 5000’ foot cells that serve as the tiling scheme. LiDAR data collection was performed with a Cessna 310 aircraft, utilizing a Leica ALS50-II MPiA sensor, collecting multiple return x, y, and z data as well as intensity data. LiDAR data was processed to achieve a bare ground surface. LIDAR data is remotely sensed high-resolution elevation data collected by an airborne collection platform. Using a combination of laser range finding, GPS positioning and inertial measurement technologies, LIDAR instruments are able to make highly detailed Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) of the earth’s terrain, man-made structures and vegetation. This data of inland Okaloosa County, Florida, was collected at sufficient resolution to provide a nominal point spacing of 1.5m for collected points. Up to 5 returns were recorded for each pulse in addition to an intensity value.

Use Limitation
These data depict the elevations at the time of the survey and are only accurate for that time. Users should be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions. Users should not use this data for critical applications without a full awareness of its limitations. Any conclusions drawn from analysis of this information are not the responsibility of NOAA or any of its partners. These data are NOT to be used for navigational purposes.
