2005 Hancock and Jackson Counties, MS Lidar
This metadata record describes the topographic mapping of Hancock and Jackson Counties, Mississippi during 2005. Using a combination of laser rangefinding, GPS positioning and inertial measurement technologies; LIDAR instruments are able to make highly detailed Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) of the earth’s terrain, man-made structures and vegetation. This data was collected at submeter resolution to provide nominal 5m spacing of collected points. Multiple returns were recorded for each pulse in addition to an intensity value using a Leica ALS-50 Aerial Lidar Sensor.
