        abstract:  This GIS dataset contains points, polygons, and raster grids depicting lidar-derived elevation data for the Oregon Lidar Consortium (OLC) Santiam 2018 area of interest (AOI). The AOI encompasses 106,585 acres within area of interest (AOI), and 110,378 acres within the buffered area of interest (BAOI). All data are in Polk and Marion Counties, Oregon. The nominal pulse density is eight pulses per square meter. The digital elevation model (DEM) and digital surface model (DSM) raster grid cell size is 3 feet. The intensity raster grid cell size is 1.5 feet. The native projection is Oregon Statewide Lambert, Lambert Conformal Conic, units are in international feet. The native horizontal datum is NAD83(2011) and the native vertical datum is NAVD88 (Geoid 12B). Quantum Spatial Inc. collected the lidar and created this dataset for the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI). The NOAA Office for Coastal Management received the point data and processed it to the Data Access Viewer (DAV) and http. The data were converted to geographic coordinates and ellipsoidal heights for DAV, and geographic coordinates and orthometric heights using NAVD88 for http. This data set is an LAZ (compressed LAS) format file containing LIDAR point cloud data.
        purpose:  This dataset provides high resolution elevation data that is used to produce three-dimensional models of the earth surface for the purpose of managing natural resources and mapping natural hazards.

            nameOfMeasure:  Vertical Positional Accuracy
            evaluationMethodDescription:  State of Oregon Agency-Specific Price Agreement 7525 required that Quantum Spatial Inc. calculate fundamental vertical accuracy of lidar point data by comparing reserved ground control points (GCPs) on flat surfaces in areas where ground classified point resolution is both high, and the ground surface is open, smooth and without vegetation, to a local triangulated irregular network (TIN) surface of ground classified points. The fundamental vertical accuracy did not exceed 9.25 cm RMSE.Qualitative value:0.022 m RMSE, Test that produced the value: The vertical accuracy was tested using 20 reserved ground survey points (GSPs), or quality assurance points (QAPs) located in open terrain. The QAPs were uniformly distributed throughout the project area. The 20 QAPs were established using GPS or other techniques that result in vertical and horizontal accuracies of 1.5 cm root-mean-square-error (RMSE) or better. Vertical accuracy was assessed by QSI by calculating and averaging the distances between GSPs that are not clustered and a surface interpolated from lidar first returns. The RMSE was computed to be 2.20 centimeters as defined by the National Standards for Spatial Data Accuracy (NSSDA); assessed and reported using National Digital Elevation Program (NDEP)/ASPRS Guidelines.

                description:  1. TRAJECTORY: Aircraft trajectory (position and attitude) were calculated based on on-board GPS and IMU data with post-processing refinement through coincident static GPS collection. 2. POST-PROCESSING: Laser point return coordinates (x,y,z) were computed using sensor-specific post processing software, combining LiDAR return range and intensity information with aircraft trajectory information. 3. INITIAL QAQC: The post-processed LiDAR files were assembled into flight lines and reviewed for gaps and consistency, as well as systematic noise. 4. CALIBRATION: Custom algorithms evaluated individual swaths for misalignments based on IMU configuration as well as aircraft attitude variability. Offsets were resolved through surface and linear matching algorithms that minimize variability in elevation and slope. Descriptive statistics, thresholds, and specifications providing transparency for data calibration are discussed in the accompanying Data Report. 5. GROUND MODELING: Ground classified point cloud was generated through proprietary data processing tools, with settings and thresholds appropriate to landscape and vegetation condition. 6. ARTIFACT FILTRATION: Noise and processing artifacts were filtered using post-processing software and proprietary quality control methods. 7. ACCURACY ASSESSMENT: Vertical accuracy for the LiDAR dataset was assessed against reserved Quality Assurance Points (QAPs) distributed throughout the study area and not used during calibration processes. See the accompanying Data Report for methodology, descriptive statistics, and relevant standards and reporting language. 8. DATA PRODUCT: LiDAR points classified as 'ground' were output as a digital elevation model (DEM). 9. Hydro Flattening Breakline Processing: Class 2 LiDAR was used to create a bare earth surface model. E-Cognition utilized rasters created within Bentley Microstation to auto-generate breaklines of inland streams and rivers with a 100 foot nominal width and Inland Ponds of 2 acres or greater surface area. Breaklines for Lakes with surface area greater than 2 acres were generated using heads-up digitization. Elevation values were assigned to all Inland Ponds and Lakes within ESRI ArcMap; Inland Pond and Lake Islands, Inland Stream and River Islands were assigned elevation values from within ESRI ArcMap. All ground (ASPRS Class 2) LiDAR data inside of the collected inland breaklines were then classified to water (ASPRS Class 9) using TerraScan macro functionality. A buffer of 2.1 meter was also used around each hydro-flattened stream. These points were moved from ground (ASPRS Class 2) to Ignored Ground (ASPRS Class 10). The breakline files were then translated to ESRI File-Geodatabase format using ESRI conversion tools.

                description:  Data was obtained by NOAA Office for Coastal Management from DOGAMI. Data were in Oregon Lambert NAD83(2011) international feet with NAVD88(Geoid12B) international feet vertically. Data were converted to geographic coordinates in ellipsoid heights (meters) using the general cartographic transform package subroutines and reversing the application of GEOID12B.

                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:
