|2011 U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Topographic LiDAR: Louisiana Region 1
||TASK NAME: Louisiana Region 1 LiDAR ARRA Task Order LiDAR Data Acquisition and Processing
Production Task- Vermillion, Iberia, St. Mary, Terrebonne, and Lafourche Parishes
USGS Contract No: G10PC00057 Task Order No: G10PD02781 Woolpert ORDER NUMBER: 70930
CONTRACTOR: Woolpert, Inc. LiDAR data is a remotely sensed high resolution elevation
data collected by an airborne platform. The LiDAR sensor uses a combination of laser
range finding, GPS positioning, and inertial measurement technologies. The LiDAR systems
collect data point clouds that are used to produce highly detailed Digital Elevation
Models (DEMs) of the earth's terrain, man-made structures, and vegetation. The task
required the LiDAR data to be collected at a nominal pulse spacing (NPS) of 2.0 meters.
The final products include first, last, and at least one intermediate return LAS,
full classified LAS and a bare earth model in separate files.
