This dataset, located within Joshua Tree National Park, CA, was collected as an NCALM Seed grant for Katherine Anna Guns, University of Arizona, Geosciences Department to support an investigation of possible slip rates on the Southern San Andreas Fault through the Eastern Transverse Ranges. The requested survey area is located approximately 31 km east of Palm Springs, CA. The polygon encloses approximately 64 km2
. Note: A considerable percentage of the points in this dataset were classified as "building" (LAS class 6) although visual inspection indicates these points are mostly above-ground vegetation. For the purposes of distribution through OpenTopography, these points have been grouped with "unclassified" (LAS class 1) points to reduce point cloud classification to either "ground" or "unclassified" below.
