2007 Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DoGAMI) LiDAR: Northwest Oregon and Portland Metro Area
Watershed Sciences, Inc. collected Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data for the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DoGAMI) and the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) between March 15 and November 7 2007. This data set has bare earth and unclassified points. The dataset encompasses portions of the following counties in northwest Oregon: Multnomah, Marion, Hood River, Clackamas, Columbia, Washington and Yamhill. Areas of interest within this data set are the Portland Metro area, Mt. Hood and Silver Falls State Park. There is approximately 8 points per square meter over terrestrial surfaces. In some areas of heavy vegetation or forest cover, there may be relatively few ground points in the LiDAR data. Elevation values for open water surfaces are not valid elevation values because few LiDAR points are returned from water surfaces. Lidar intensity values were also collected.
