|2008 Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) Lidar: Camp Creek
||The Oregon Department of Geology & Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) contracted with Watershed
Sciences, Inc. to collect high resolution topographic lidar data for multiple areas
within the State of Oregon. The areas for lidar collection have been designed as part
of a collaborative effort of state, federal, and local agencies in order to meet a
wide range of project goals. The Camp Creek study area was collected August 19 - 27,
2008 and covers a portion of eastern Grant County. The total flown area covers 320
square miles, or 205,250 acres. This data set consists of bare earth and unclassified
points. There are approximately 8 points per square meter over terrestrial surfaces.
In some areas of heavy vegetation or forest cover, there may be relatively few ground
points in the lidar data. Elevation values for open water surfaces are not valid elevation
values because few lidar points are returned from water surfaces. Lidar intensity
values were also collected.
