This dataset was collected using the Optech Aquarius ALTM, a hybrid laser mapping system which collects simultaneous land and shallow water-depth measurements using a beam wavelength of 532 nm.
This dataset was collected as an NCALM Seed grant for PI Jason Alexandra, University of Wyoming.
This survey was performed with 2 different LiDAR systems: 1) Optech Gemini Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (ALTM) which is an infrared laser mapping sensor and 2) Optech Aquarius ALTM which is a hybrid laser mapping system as it collects simultaneous land and shallow water-depth measurements. It operates in the green spectrum, thus enabling it to penetrate water. These LiDAR mapping systems along with an Optech 12-bit full waveform digitizer were mounted consecutively in a twin-engine Piper PA- 31-350 Navajo Chieftain (Tail Number N154WW).
