Count Component Title Abstract
1 2009 Aero-Metric Inc. Topographic LiDAR: Yukon Flats, Alaska This delivery contains point cloud data in LAS 1.2 format, classified in the following manner. Class 1: Unclassified and Class 2: Ground. Overlap points have been flagged as withheld. The timestamps are in absolute GPS time minus 1 billion, in accordance with the LAS 1.2 documentation. The following are the collection parameters and equipment used to create this data set. Aircraft: Piper Navajo (N6GR) Lidar System: Optech ALTM Gemini (03SEN145) Approximate Collection Altitude (Above Mean Terrain): 3800 meters Ground Speed: 160 kts Pulse Rate Frequency: 33 kHz Mirror Scan Frequency: 18 Hz Scan Angle (+/-): 16 degrees Beam Divergence: Narrow (0.25 mrad) Scan Cutoff: 0.02 degrees Accuracy statements are based on areas of moderate terrain, with points classified as ground. Diminished accuracies are to be expected in areas of extreme terrain and dense vegetation. The accuracy of each point is expected to meet the vertical accuracy standard, derived products may be less accurate in areas of extreme terrain and dense vegetation due to a lesser number of points defining the ground in these areas. Classified data sets such as this one may have varying posting due to some pulses not reaching the ground.

    Count Component Use Limitation
    1 Lidar 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be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions.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.

    Count Component DateTime Description
    1 2009-07-15T00:00:00 Create a smoothed-best estimated trajectory (SBET) of the sensor at a rate of 200 Hz, by integrating the airborne GPS and IMU data The basis of the GPS coordinates were established using OPUS, and were referenced to NAD83 (CORS96) with ellipsoidal heights. The mean GPS positional accuracy for this area was +/- 0.08 meters.
    1 2009-07-17T00:00:00 Integrate SBET and raw laser data to produce point cloud data in LAS 1.2 format for each flight line.
    1 2009-08-01T00:00:00 Compute the roll, pitch, heading, and mirror scale correction factors for each flight line, then apply corrections to the corresponding flight line.
    1 2009-09-15T00:00:00 Automated classification of the bare-earth data from the lidar point cloud using a series of algorithms customized for the types of terrain encountered in the project.
    1 2009-09-20T00:00:00 Manual classification of any data which appears to be bare-earth but was not properly classified using the automated methods.
    1 2009-11-14T00:00:00 Convert point clouds with GPS week timestamps, to point clouds with absolute GPS timestamps, in LAS 1.2 format.
    1 2009-11-16T00:00:00 Data verified using survey control points, located throughout the area.
    1 2009-12-20T00:00:00 Create point clouds in LAS 1.2 format for all returns with GPS week timstamps.
    1 2013-03-01T00:00:00 The NOAA Coastal Services Center (CSC) received topographic files in LAS 1.2 format. The files contained lidar elevation and intensity measurements. The data were received in projected coordinates of NAD83 UTM6N, meters and were vertically referenced to NAVD88 orthometric elevations using GEOID06(Alaska). The vertical units of the data were meters. CSC performed the following processing for data storage and Digital Coast provisioning purposes: 1. The topographic las files were converted from Projected Coordinates (NAD83 UTM6N, meters) to Geographic Coordinates (NAD83, decimal degrees). 2. The topographic las files were vertically converted from orthometric elevations (NAVD88) to ellipsoidal elevations (NAD83) with GEOID06. 3. The data were converted to LAZ format.
    1 2013-04-25T00:00:00 The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) received lidar data files via ftp transfer from the NOAA Coastal Services Center. The data are currently being served via NOAA CSC Digital Coast at http://www.csc.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/. The data can be used to re-populate the system. The data are archived in LAS or LAZ format. The LAS format is an industry standard for LiDAR data developed by the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS); LAZ is a loseless compressed version of LAS developed by Martin Isenburg (http://www.laszip.org/). The data are exclusively in geographic coordinates (either NAD83 or ITRF94). The data are referenced vertically to the ellipsoid (either GRS80 or ITRF94), allowing for the ability to apply the most up to date geoid model when transforming to orthometric heights.
