2010 Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) Lidar: Eagle Point Study Area
browse graphic The Oregon Department of Geology and 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. This LiDAR data set was collected from October 29 through November 4, 2010 and encompasses areas including and surrounding Eagle Point, Oregon and along the Rogue River in Jackson County. This data set consists of bare earth and unclassified points. The average pulse density is 8.08 pulses per square meter over terrestrial surfaces. The area of interest (AOI) totals 203 square miles (129,628 acres) and the total area flown (TAF) covers 211 square miles (134,899 acres). The TAF acreage is greater than the original AOI acreage due to buffering and flight planning optimization. This metadata record reflects all the data and cumulative statistics for the overall lidar survey. 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.
