        abstract:  These data are from LIDAR flights of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta conducted during late January and February of 2007. The work was conducted under contract issued by California Department of Water Resources to URS Corporation. The prime LIDAR creation subcontractor was EarthData International, (later Fugro EarthData), also known as EDI. The principal aerial survey firm under subcontract to EDI was Airborne 1 Corporation. In effect, Airborne 1 performed the aerial survey, and EDI did the processing and deliverables preparation. Also involved in the contract to URS was an independent QA/QC firm, Spectrum Mapping LLC. The data was delivered to CSC as unclassified, multiple return elevation measurements and intensity in LAS V1.0 format. The NOAA CSC used an unsupervised classification algorithm to classify the data into the following ASPRS classifications: Class 1 (Unclassified), Class 2 (Ground), and Class 7 (Noise) . Class 2 includes bare earth points and water points.
        purpose:  High-resolution digital elevation maps generated by airborne and stationary LiDAR have led to significant advances in geomorphology, the branch of geoscience concerned with the origin and evolution of Earth's surface topography. LiDAR provides unique characteristics relative to other remotely sensed data sources by providing three-dimensional feature information that cannot be derived from traditional imaging sensors.

                description:  The NOAA Coastal Services Center (CSC) received topographic files in LAS format. The files contained lidar elevation and intensity measurements. The data were received in projected UTM Zone 10N, NAD83 coordinates and were vertically referenced to NAVD88. The vertical units of the data were meters. CSC performed the following processing for data storage and Digital Coast provisioning purposes: 1. The unclassified LAS files were classified by NOAA CSC using MARS7 software. The data contains Class 1 (Unclassified), Class 2 (Ground), and Class 7 (Noise). 2. The LAS files were retiled into 1500x1500 meters tiles using MARS7 software. 3. The LAS files' Class 2 (Ground) points were rechecked for High/Low Noise. If points were found they were removed from the data. 4. Horizontally the data was converted from projected UTM Zone 10N coordinates (meters) to geographic NAD83 coordinates (decimal degrees). 5. Vertically the data was converted from orthometric NAVD88 heights (meters) to ellipsoidal NAD83 (meters) using GEOID03 (Geoid model assumed). 6. The data were converted to LAZ format.

                description:  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.
