2023 AK DGGS Lidar: Wrangell Island, AK

Welcome Guest   ( Sign In )
Lidar-derived elevation data for Wrangell Island, Southeast Alaska, collected July 2023, Raw Data File 2023-28, provides lidar-derived classified point cloud, a digital surface model (DSM), a digital terrain model (DTM), and an intensity model of Wrangell Island, Southeast Alaska, during leaf-on ground conditions. The survey provides snow-free surface elevations for use in shoreline development, resource quantification, hydrographic mapping, and slope stability modeling. Ground control data were collected June 26-30, 2023, and aerial lidar data were collected July 7-11, 2023, and subsequently merged and processed using a suite of geospatial processing software. All files can be downloaded from the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys website (http://doi.org/10.14509/31098). This metadata record supports the data entry in the NOAA Digital Coast Data Access Viewer (DAV). The NOAA Office for Coastal Management (OCM) downloaded laz point data files from the AK DGGS (Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys) website (https://dggs.alaska.gov/pubs/id/31098) . The data were processed to the NOAA Digital Coast Data Access Viewer (DAV) to make the data available for bulk and custom downloads. In addition to these lidar point data, the bare earth Digital Elevation Models (DEM) created from the lidar point data are also available. These data are available for custom download at the link provided in the URL section of this metadata record. This data set is an LAZ (compressed LAS) format file containing LIDAR point cloud data.
