2011 NOAA National Geodetic Survey (NGS) Lidar: Fire Island, NY and Cape May to Absecon Inlet, NJ
This kmz file shows the extent of coverage for the 2011 NGS New York/New Jersey lidar data set.
These data were collected by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration National Geodetic Survey Remote Sensing Division using a Riegl Q680i-D system. The data includes topographic data in an LAS 1.2 format file classified as unclassified (1), ground (2), and water (9) in accordance with the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) classification standards. This data set also includes lidar intensity values and encoded RGB image values. Fire Island, NY data collected on Nov 25, 2011 and the Cape May to Absecon Inlet, NJ data was collected on July 16, 2011.

Data include all lidar returns. Outliers or false returns (e.g., returns from birds, atmospheric particles, and or system noise) may be present in the data. An automated ground classification algorithm was used to determine bare earth point classification. It should be noted that not all water returns were correctly classified, therefore the ground classification could proceed into water bodies, and should be removed by the user.
|Purpose:||This lidar was acquired by the NOAA Remote Sensing Division to support NOAA's Coastal Mapping Program. It is not intended for mapping, charting, or navigation. In addition, it will be used for ongoing research efforts for testing and developing standards for airborne lidar.|
