2010 Pacific Gas and Electric Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP): Diablo Canyon, CA Central Coast

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

The Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP) LiDAR and Imagery datasets are comprised of three separate LiDAR surveys: Diablo Canyon (2010), Diablo Canyon (2010), and San Simeon (2013). The Diablo Canyon project study is located in San Luis Obispo County, California, and encompasses approximately 10,634 acres (43.03 square kilometers). Watershed Sciences, Inc. (WSI) collected Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data on both the inland and intertidal land within the Diablo Canyon study area on 28 January 2010. For optimal capture of the intertidal zone, WSI acquired LiDAR data of the coastline during seasonal low tides (between 0.0 ft and peak low of around 1.5 ft) and in conjunction with a PDOP value of less than 3.0. This LiDAR survey utilized a Leica ALS50 Phase II laser system. The sensor scan angle was +/- 13 from nadir with a pulse rate designed to yield an average native density of more than 8 pulses per square meter over terrestrial surfaces. The area of interest was surveyed with an opposing flight line side-lap of equal-to-or-more-than 50% (equal-to-or-more-than 100% overlap) to reduce laser shadowing and increase surface laser painting.
