|2008 Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) Lidar: Ontario
||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 December 3 -
10, 2008 and covers a portion of northeastern Malheur County. The total flown area
covers 261 square miles, or 167,324 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.
