2012 Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GADNR) Topographic LiDAR: Floyd, Polk, Paulding and Oconee Counties
This graphic shows the lidar coverage for Polk County, Paulding County, Floyd County and Oconee County in Georgia.
TASK NAME:FY 2012 GEORGIA DNR ELEVATION DATA NOAA Contract No. EA133C11CQ0010 Requisition No. NCNP0000-11-02615 Woolpert Order No. 71511 CONTRACTOR: Woolpert, Inc. The PSFY12 GADNR Elevation Data Task Order involves: collecting and delivering topographic elevation point data derived from multiple return light detection and ranging (LiDAR) measurements for portions of 4 counties in Georgia. The Statement of Work (SOW) was developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Coastal Services Center (referred to as the Center) in partnership with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GADNR) Environmental Protection Division (EPD). The counties included Floyd, Polk, Paulding and Oconee. The purpose of the data is for use in coastal management decision making, including applications such as flood plain mapping and water rights management. LiDAR was collected at 1.0 points per square meter (1.0m GSD) for the portions of Floyd, Polk, Paulding and Oconee Counties. This area was flown during snow free and leaf-off conditions.

The reflective surface data represents the DEM created by the laser energy reflected from the first surface encountered by the laser pulse. Some energy may continue beyond this initial surface, to be reflected by a subsequent surface as represented by the last return data. Intensity information is captured from the reflective surface pulse and indicates the relative energy returned to the sensor, as compared to the energy transmitted. The intensity image is not calibrated or normalized but indicates differences in energy absorption due to the interaction of the surface materials with laser energy, at the wavelength transmitted by the sensor. The bare earth model is created by identifying the returns that fall on the ground surface and by interpolating a surface between these points. In this manner, buildings and vegetation are removed from the bare earth model. This data set does not include bridges and overpasses in the bare earth model as the delineation point for these structures is not reliably discernable in the LiDAR data.
|Purpose:||This task order consisted of LiDAR data acquisition and processing for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Coastal Services Center (CSC) four Counties in Georgia: Floyd, Oconee, Paulding and Polk. The LiDAR data acquisition and processing for Floyd, Oconee, Paulding and Polk Counties was performed in the Spring of 2012. The LiDAR data was provided to NOAA CSC, as part of the FY 2012 Georgia Elevation Data task order. The task order area for Floyd, Polk, and Paulding Counties was approximately 460.6 square miles, and the task order area for Oconee County was approximately 233.6 square miles The LiDAR data was collected to meet Fundamental Vertical Accuracy (FVA) Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) of 18.0 cm or better at a 95% confidence level, so that when combined with breaklines, the data adequately supports the generation of two (2) foot FEMA compliant contours. The final LiDAR data was delivered in 5,000' x 5,000' tiles using NAD 1983 (NSRS2007), Georgia State Plane Coordinate System, West Zone 1002.|
