        abstract:  Camp Dresser McKee Inc. contracted with Sanborn Map Company to provide LiDAR mapping services for Fort Kent, Maine. Utilizing multi-return systems, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data in the form of 3-dimensional positions of a dense set of mass points was collected in spring 2009 for 187 square miles along the St. Johns River and the Fish River. The Leica ALS-50 LiDAR system was used to collect data for the survey campaign. The nominal point spacing of this data set is 1.4 meters. Leica ALS-50 LiDAR System Acquisition Parameters: Average Altitude: 1400 Meters above ground level Airspeed: ~120 Knots Scan Frequency: 36 Hertz Scan Width Half Angle: 20 Degrees Pulse Rate: 76,200 Hertz
        purpose:  LiDAR points used in conjunction with LiDAR derived breaklines to determine a DTM surface.

        report:  (DQ_AbsoluteExternalPositionalAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Horizontal Positional Accuracy
            measureDescription:  Units in meters. Horizontal point accuracy is a function of angular origination of the pulse; IMU orientation; the scanner encoder and ranging function and will vary depending on the proposed point density selected for the collection. Statistically, the error is roughly 1/3 of the illuminated foot print on the ground and is a function of the beam divergences.

        report:  (DQ_AbsoluteExternalPositionalAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Vertical Positional Accuracy
            measureDescription:  Units in meters. Based on the vertical accuracy testing conducted by Sanborn using NSSDA and FEMA methodology, vertical accuracy at the 95% confidence level (called Accuracyz) is computed by the formula RMSEz x 1.9600.

                description:  The ABGPS, IMU, and raw Leica ALS-50 LiDAR data are integrated into the LEICA ALS post processor software. The resultant file is in a LAS binary file format. The LAS file version 1.1 formats can be easily transferred from one file format to another. It is a binary file format that maintains information specific to the LiDAR data (return#, intensity value, xyz, etc.). The resultant points are produced in the geodetic coordinates referenced to the NAD83 horizontal datum and GRS80 vertical datum.

                description:  The unedited data are classified to facilitate the application of the appropriate feature extraction filters. A combination of proprietary filters is applied as appropriate for the production of bare earth digital terrain models (dtms). Interactive editing methods are applied to those areas where it is inappropriate or impossible to use the feature extraction filters, based upon the design criteria and/or limitations of the relevant filters. These same feature extraction filters are used to produce elevation height surfaces. The LiDAR mass points were delivered in American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing LAS 1.1 format. The header file for each dataset is complete as define by the LAS 1.1 specification. The data was classified as follows: Class 1 = Unclassified. This class includes vegetation, buildings, noise etc. Class 2 = Ground.

                description:  The NOAA Coastal Services Center (CSC) received the topographic files in .las.gz compressed format. The files were LAS version 1.1. The files contained lidar elevation measurements. The data were received in NAD83 Maine State Plane 2000 East coordinates coordinates and were vertically referenced to NAVD88 using the Geoid03 model. The vertical units of the data were feet. CSC performed the following processing for data storage and Digital Coast provisioning purposes: 1. The compressed .las.gz files were uncompressed to LASV1.1 format. 2. The topographic las files were converted from a Projected Coordinate System (Maine SP 2000 East) to a Geographic Coordinate system (GCS). 3. The topographic las files' horizontal units were converted from feet to decimal degrees. 4. The topographic las files were converted from orthometric (NAVD88) heights to ellipsoidal heights using Geoid03. 5. The topographic las files' vertical units were converted from feet to meters. 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.
