2015 NOAA NGS Topobathy Lidar: Buzzards Bay Block2 (MA)

Metadata Updated: March 15, 2024

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 20151104 - 20151109. The data includes topobathy data in an LAS 1.2 format file classified as unclassified (1), ground (2), noise (7), bathymetric point (24), sensor noise refracted (26), topobathy water surface (27), and International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) S-57 object (30) in accordance with the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) classification standards. This data set may also include lidar intensity values and encoded RGB image values.
