Digital image mosaics of the nearshore coastal waters of selected areas on the island of Hawai'i generated using aerial photographs and SHOALS airborne lidar bathymetry data

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This portion of the data release contains image mosaics generated using digitized 1:24K natural color photographs collected in June 2000 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Ocean Service (NOS). These four image mosaics have 1.0 meter-per-pixel resolution, and intermittently cover approximately 53 km (33 mi) of shallow, coastal waters along the west, Kona coast, of the island of Hawai'i, including (from north to south) the Kawaihae, Waikoloa, Kukio, and Kailua-Kona areas. Each digital image mosaic area is downloadable as a separate zip file ( that contains two versions of the image mosaic--one with and one without a lidar bathymetry shaded-relief image digitally combined with the aerial photography mosaic results. The shaded-relief image was derived using airborne SHOALS (Scanning Hydrographic Operational Lidar Survey) lidar (LIght Detection And Ranging) data collected for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) in April 1999. Also included in each zip file is a lower-resolution 'browse' graphic of each image mosaic and associated metadata.
