        abstract:  Watershed Sciences, Inc. (WS) collected Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data in eastern Washington, eastern Oregon, and southern Canada in October and November, 2006 for the Puget Sound LiDAR Consortium. The survey areas cover portions of the lower Okanogan River in Washington, the Methow River in Washington, Lake Roosevelt in Washington, the Wenatchee River in Washington, and the John Day River in Oregon. The upper Okanogan River area, in Canada, was excluded from this project the data does not lie in borders of the United States. The total delivered acreage for the study areas shown above is >26,000 acres greater than the original amount, due to buffering of the original study areas and flight planning optimization. Collection dates for the project areas: ----- Lower Okanogan (WA) 20060506 ----- Methow (WA) 20061108-20061109 ----- Lake Roosevelt (WA) 20061016-20061020 & 20061029-20061101 ----- John Day River (OR) 20061005-20061007 ----- Wenatchee (WA) 20061012-20061013 & 20061025-20061028 ----- This data set is an LAZ (compressed LAS) format file containing LIDAR point cloud data.
        purpose:  Provide high resolution terrain elevation and land cover elevation data.

The standard system results for horizontal accuracy are less than 1 meter. Not reported, assumed as 1.0 m. ; Quantitative Value: 1.0 meters, Test that produced the value: See LiDAR data report.

        report:  (DQ_AbsoluteExternalPositionalAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Vertical Positional Accuracy
            evaluationMethodDescription:  LiDAR survey datasets are referenced to 1-Hz static ground GPS data collected over presurveyed monuments with known coordinates. While surveying, the aircraft collects 2 Hz kinematic GPS data. The onboard inertial measurement unit (IMU) collects 200 Hz aircraft attitude data. Waypoint GPS v.7.60 and REALM are used to process the kinematic corrections for the aircraft. The static and kinematic GPS data are then post-processed after the survey to obtain an accurate GPS solution and aircraft positions. IPAS v.1.0 and POSPAC are used to develop a trajectory file that includes corrected aircraft position and attitude information. The trajectory data for the entire flight survey session are incorporated into a final smoothed best estimate trajectory (SBET) file that contains accurate and continuous aircraft positions and attitudes. RTK GPS measurements were taken throughout all study areas and are compared to LiDAR point data in each study area. The root mean square error (RMSE) is reported for each study area, along with 1- and 2-sigma absolute deviation values available in report at: https://noaa-nos-coastal-lidar-pds.s3.amazonaws.com/laz/geoid18/2596/supplemental/wa2006_pslc_rivercorridors.pdf ; Quantitative Value: 0.12 meters, Test that produced the value: Accuracies averaged to 0.12 m. 2 sigma standard deviations absolute accuracy calculated as 0.16 meters in Lower Okanogan, 0.16 m in the Methow area, 0.09 m in the Lake Roosevelt area, 0.06 m in the Wenatchee study area and 0.14 m in the John Day study area.

            nameOfMeasure:  Conceptual Consistency
            evaluationMethodDescription:  LiDAR flight lines have been examined to ensure that there was at least 60% sidelap, there are minimal gaps between flightlines, and overlapping flightlines have consistent elevation values. Shaded relief images have been visually inspected for data errors such as pits, border artifacts, gaps, and shifting. The data was examined at a 1:2000 scale.

            processStep:  (LI_ProcessStep)
                description:  Acquisition. The LiDAR surveys utilized two different laser systems degrees - the Leica ALS50 Phase II and the Optech 3100. Flight parameters were different for each system, resulting in different native pulse densities (the number of pulses emitted by the LiDAR system from the aircraft). Some types of surfaces (i.e., dense vegetation or water) may return fewer pulses than the laser originally emitted. Therefore, the delivered density can be less than the native density and lightly variable according to distributions of terrain, land cover and water bodies. All study areas were surveyed with opposing flight line side-lap of =50% (=100% overlap) to reduce laser shadowing and increase surface laser painting. Both laser systems allow up to four range measurements per pulse, and all discernable laser returns were processed for the output dataset.
            processStep:  (LI_ProcessStep)
                description:  1. Flight lines and data were reviewed to ensure complete coverage of the study area and positional accuracy of the laser points. 2. Laser point return coordinates were computed using ALS Post Processor software, IPAS Pro GPS/INS software, and Waypoint GPS, based on independent data from the LiDAR system, IMU, and aircraft. 3. The raw LiDAR file was assembled into flight lines per return with each point having an associated x, y, and z coordinate. 4. Visual inspection of swath to swath laser point consistencies within the study area were used to perform manual refinements of system alignment. 5. Custom algorithms were designed to evaluate points between adjacent flight lines. Automated system alignment was computed based upon randomly selected swath to swath accuracy measurements that consider elevation, slope, and intensities. Specifically, refinement in the combination of system pitch, roll and yaw offset parameters optimize internal consistency. 6. Noise (e.g., pits and birds) was filtered using ALS postprocessing software, based on known elevation ranges and included the removal of any cycle slips. 7. Using TerraScan and Microstation, ground classifications utilized custom settings appropriate to the study area. 8. The corrected and filtered return points were compared to the RTK ground survey points collected to verify the vertical and horizontal accuracies. 9. Points were output as laser points, TINed and GRIDed surfaces
            processStep:  (LI_ProcessStep)
                description:  The NOAA Office for Coastal Management (OCM) downloaded topographic files in text format from PSLC's website. The files contained lidar easting, northing, elevation, intensity, return number, class, scan angle and GPS time measurements. Lake Roosevelt, John Day River and Lower Okanogan data was received in UTM Zone 10 (in meters); Wenatchee and Methow data were received in UTM Zone 11 (in meters); all datasets were vertically referenced to NAVD88 using the Geoid03 model. The vertical units of the data were meters. OCM performed the following processing for data storage and Digital Coast provisioning purposes: 1. The All-Return ASCII txt files were parsed to LAS files. 2. The All-Return ASCII files were converted from txt format to las format using LASTools' txt2las tool and reclassified to fit the OCM class list, N=1 (unclassified), G=2 (ground). 3. Bad elevations were removed the las files. 4. The las files were converted from a Projected Coordinate System (UTM Zone 10/11) to a Geographic Coordinate system (NAD83)

                description:   The vertical values in this data set have been converted to reference North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88) (GEOID18) meters, using the GEOID18 grids provided by the National Geodetic Survey. Any datum and projection transformations were then done with the Office for Coastal Management 'datum_shift' program. Compression to an LAZ file was done with the LAStools 'laszip' program and can be unzipped with the same free program (laszip.org) Processing notes:
