Summary
Abstract: The LIDAR data sets are generated using an Optech "Gemini" LIDAR data acquisition system mounted onboard AERO-METRIC, Inc's twin-engine Cessna 320 (N3443Q) aircraft. Classified data sets such as this one may have varying posting due to some LIDAR pulses not reaching the ground.

Accuracy statements are based on areas of moderate terrain. Diminished accuracies are to be expected in ... View entire text

Purpose: The purpose of this data set is to provide a source for current and accurate digital elevation models (DEM) with vertical accuracy of 0.15 cm or better and with a nominal point spacing of .96 cm. A DEM is used as a fundamental layer of information in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). A number of the priority layers of spatial information recognized by the National Spatial Data Infrastructure may be derived from LIDAR DEMs, including elevation, hydrography, slope, aspect, and shoreline delineation. This data is not recommended for design grade mapping or engineering without a ground truth survey.
