XYZ dataset of lidar, single-beam, and multibeam sonar data collected at Lake Superior at Minnesota Point near the Superior Entry, Duluth, MN, September 2022

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This dataset is comprised of three files containing northing, easting, and elevation ("XYZ") information for light detection and ranging (lidar) data representing the beach topography and sonar data representing near-shore topography of Lake Superior at Minnesota Point, near the Duluth entry, Duluth, Minnesota. The point data is the same as that in LAS files that were used to create the digital elevation models (DEMs) of the approximate 2.15 square kilometer surveyed area. Lidar data were collected September 07, 2022 using a boat mounted Velodyne VLP-16 unit and methodology similar to that described by Huizinga and Wagner (2019). Multibeam sonar data were collected September 06-07, 2022 using a Norbit integrated wide band multibeam system compact (iWBMSc) sonar unit and methodology similar to that described by Richards and Huizinga (2018). Single-beam sonar data were collected September 07, 2022 using a Ceescope echosounder and methodology similar to that described by Wilson and Richards (2006).This project followed similar methods to that of Wagner, Lund, and Sanks (2020), who completed a similar survey in 2019.
