2012 NOAA Lidar: American Samoa Point Cloud files with Orthometric Vertical Datum American Samoa Vertical Datum of 2002 (ASVD02) using GEOID12B

Below are links to the files that make up the 2012 NOAA Lidar: American Samoa dataset in an orthometric vertical datum American Samoa Vertical Datum of 2002 (ASVD02) using GEOID12B. This HTML file is here to emulate the access you would have gotten through an ftp site. The files containing geospatial indices, metadata, etc., are listed first, followed by the files. To download in bulk, it is suggested you use a program such as wget (example below). The geospatial index file in shapefile format also has a URL attribute that some GIS programs can use to download files. You can also subset the data, make derived products, and change projection, datum, etc., using the Digital Coast Data Access Viewer (add to cart, the link to bulk download or LAZ fmt will take you here).

The data are all in geographic coordinates using the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83). The version of the NAD83 datum may vary slightly, but all are one of the updated realizations such as the High Accuracy Reference Network (HARN), Continuously Operating Reference System of 1996 (CORS96), or National Spatial Reference System of 2007 (NSRS2007), and not the original NAD83(86). This may not be evident in the metadata. Vertical units are meters and all have been converted from NAD83 ellipsoid heights to orthometric American Samoa Vertical Datum of 2002 (ASVD02) heights using GEOID12B.

The files are in LAZ format, a lossless compressed version of the ASPRS LAS format. The compression and decompression is done with the free and open source 'laszip' program available at http://laszip.org. This is not the same as the more general zip format. Many geospatial programs will read LAZ files natively and decompression is often not necessary. There is a list of software with native support on the laszip site.

Example to download entire data set using wget (note: sufficiently new and trusted pre-compiled Windows versions can be hard to find):
wget -np -r -nH -L --cut-dirs=2 https://chs.coast.noaa.gov/htdata/lidar1_z/geoid12b/data/2490/
This will give you the directory structure starting with geoid12b. Modify the --cut-dirs=2 argument to modify the start directory (e.g. --cut-dirs=4 will start at 2490). Wget is a command-line program and the output will be to the directory you run it in. More options and information can be found at http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/wget.html. The other options in the example mean:


If you have problems with wget that look like an authorization or certificate issue, you may need to add the option "--no-check-certificate". Windows users may want to install the Windows Subsystem for Linux to get a current wget.

You can also use the uGet program with the list of URLs in file urllist2490.txt. Several posts on the GeoZone blog provide help with downloading, including:

The total size to download all the files is 3.5G.

If you need FTP access instead of HTTPS, use ftp://ftp.coast.noaa.gov/pub/DigitalCoast/lidar1_z/geoid12b/data/2490

Georeferencing Note

You may find the georeferencing on the files refers to generic NAD83 (EPSG code 4269). All files, with the exception of the few in WGS84, are in a more recent realization of NAD83 such as NAD83(CORS96), NAD83(HARN), NAD83(NSRS2007), or NAD83(2011).
