2014 NOAA NGS Topobathy Lidar: Post Sandy, Rhode Island

Metadata Updated: March 26, 2021

These data were collected by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration National Geodetic Survey Remote Sensing Division using a Riegl VQ820G system. The data were acquired from 20140717 - 20140809 in twenty two missions. The missions flown on 20140718, 20140719, 20140720, 20140721, 20140722, 20140723, 20140724, 20140725, 20140731, 20140806, and 20140807 represent the Low Water missions and the missions flown on 20140717, 20140718, 20140719, 20140722, 20140723, 20140725, 20140731, 20140801, 20140807, 20140808, and 20140809 represent the High Water (everything outside of MLLW tidal requirements) missions. The data includes topobathy data in an LAS 1.2 format file classified as unclassified (1), ground (2), topo noise (7), refracted High Water data landward of the MLLW land/water interface (18), bathy noise (22), noise as defined by the sensor (23), refracted sensor noise (24), water column (25), bathymetric bottom or submerged topography (26), water surface (27), International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) S-57 objects (30), and temporal bathy bottom (31) in accordance with project specifications. The original project consisted of approximately 100 square miles along the Atlantic Coast of Rhode Island. The full project including buffered area and all flightline coverage is approximately 205 square miles. This dataset represents a contiguous area covering 2104 - 500 m x 500 m lidar tiles.
