2008 Northwest Florida Water Management District Lidar: Eglin Air Force Base, Walton County, FL
This kmz file shows the extent of coverage for the 2008 NWFWMD Walton County-Eglin AFB lidar data set.
In the summer of 2008, the Northwest Florida Water Management District collected lidar data over a portion of Walton County, FL (Eglin Air force Base) to support various projects such as floodplain and hazards mapping, wetlands mitigation and stormwater management. The data collection occured in a portion of the county for which there is no prior collected lidar data. Used in conjunction with previously collected data in Walton County (FDEM Lidar collected in 2006), these data support the creation of a county-wide, high resolution, lidar derived digital elevation model(DEM).

Reflective surface data represents the DEM created by laser energy reflected from the first surface encountered by the laser pulse. Some energy may continue beyond this initial surface to be reflected by a subsequent surface as represented by the Last Return data. Intensity information is captured from the Reflective Surface pulse and indicates the relative energy returned to the sensor as compared to the energy transmitted. The Intensity image is not calibrated or normalized but indicates differences in energy absorption due to the interaction of the surface materials with laser energy at the wavelength transmitted by the sensor. Points are classified as water, bare ground or not bare ground to support creation of a bare earth model from the data.
