2010 Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) Lidar: Klamath Study Area
browse graphic 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. This LiDAR data set was collected over six deliveries from September 14 through October 27, 2010 and encompasses portions of Klamath and Lake counties in Oregon. This data set consists of bare earth and unclassified points. The average pulse density is 8.61 pulses per square meter over terrestrial surfaces. The area of interest (AOI) totals 1054 square miles (674,756 acres) and the total area flown (TAF) covers 1083 square miles (692,999 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. Dates of acquisition for the six deliveries that make up this data set.
