2011 NOAA National Geodetic Survey (NGS) LIDAR of North Carolina: Hurricane Irene Emergency Response Mapping Product
This file shows the coverage for the 2011 NGS North Carolina Post Hurricane Irene lidar.
These data were collected by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration National Geodetic Survey Remote Sensing Division using a Riegl Q680i-D system. The data were collected August 28 and 29, 2011 after landfall of Hurricane Irene in Dare and Carteret counties in North Carolina. 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.

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 Emergency Response 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.|
