2016 USGS West Coast El-Nino Lidar DEM (WA, OR, CA)

Metadata Updated: November 15, 2023

Towill collected approximately 75 square miles of coast in Oregon, 486 square miles of coast in Washington and California, and an additional 44 square miles for USACE defined harbors. The data was collected in a corridor approximately 500 meters wide. The nominal pulse spacing for this project was 1 point every 0.35 meters. Dewberry used proprietary procedures to classify the LAS according to project specifications: 0-Never Classified, 1-Unclassified, 2-Ground, 7-Low Noise, 9-Water, 10-Ignored Ground due to breakline proximity, 17- Bridges, 18-High Noise, 64- Flown Outside of Low Tide Window and 65- Temporal Ground. Dewberry produced 3D breaklines and combined these with the final LiDAR data to produce seamless DEMs for the project area. The data was formatted according to the USNG tile naming convention with each tile covering an area of 1,500 meters by 1,500 meters. A total of 2377 UTM 10 DEM and LAS tiles and 487 UTM 11 DEM and LAS tiles were produced for the project.
