2012 USACE Post-Hurricane Sandy Topographic LiDAR: Coastal Connecticut
browse graphicThese topographic elevation data have been acquired and developed by the U.S. Corps of Engineers St. Louis District for a 116 sq. mile project area encompassing the entire coastal region of the State of Connecticut. Using an ALS-60 MPiA sensor mounted on a Cessna 310 twin engine aircraft, Fugro EarthData, Inc. collected LiDAR point measurements over the project area with a 1.0 meter, nominal post spacing. The collection for the was accomplished between November 14, 2012 and November 16, 2012; 46 flight lines were acquired in 4 lifts. The lines were flown at an average of 1825 meters feet above mean terrain using a pulse rate of 123,700 pulses per second. Multiple returns of x,y,z and intensity were acquired. The processed LiDAR classified according to LAS version 1.2 format standard: 1 unclassified, 2 ground, 7 low points, 8 model keypoints, 9 water, and 10 ignored points.

Use Limitation
These data depict the elevations at the time of the survey and are only accurate for that time. Users should be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions. Users should not use this data for critical applications without a full awareness of its limitations. Any conclusions drawn from analysis of this information are not the responsibility of NOAA or any of its partners. These data are NOT to be used for navigational purposes.
