2008 US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) National Coastal Mapping Program (NCMP) Topobathy Lidar - Indiana (Lake Michigan shoreline)
The data contained in these files contain topographic data collected by the CHARTS system along Lake Michigan, Indiana. The data are broken into boxes. The box layout index is provided by the shape file, "in_boxes.shp", and the box numbers for labels are in the "Box" field of the shape file. The data file names are based on the year, project, area name, box number, and product type. An example of the file name is "2008_NCMP_IN_Michigan_07_02DS08070_006_080916_1955_A_00452.las." The 14th digit within the file name corresponds with the box names used. The data was collected and processed in geographic coordinates and ellipsoid heights. The positions are relative to NAD83 in decimal degrees of longitude and latitude. The heights were converted from ellipsoid to orthometric heights using the Geoid03 model with the results in meters. The date and time of each point are also MM:SS.SSSSSS. The format of the file is LAS version 1.0

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be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions.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.
