        abstract:  These data were collected by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration National Geodetic Survey Remote Sensing Division using a Riegl VQ820G system. The data were acquired from 20150314 - 20150323. The data includes topobathy data in an LAS 1.2 format file classified as 1 - unclassified, 2 - ground, 7 - topo noise, 26 - bathymetric bottom or submerged topography, 27 - water surface, 28 - submerged object and 30 - International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) S-57 objects. This data set may also include lidar intensity values and encoded RGB image values. Original contact information: Contact Org: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Ocean Service (NOS), National Geodetic Survey (NGS), Remote Sensing Division Title: Chief, Remote Sensing Division Phone: 301-713-2663 This data set is an LAZ (compressed LAS) format file containing LIDAR point cloud data.
        purpose:  This lidar data are an ancillary product of NOAA's Coastal Mapping Program (CMP), created through a wider Integrated Ocean and Coastal Mapping initiative to increase support for multiple uses of the data. It is not intended for mapping, charting, or navigation. In addition, it will be used for ongoing research efforts for testing and developing standards for airborne lidar.

        supplementalInformation:  Data include all lidar returns. Outliers or false returns (e.g., returns from birds, atmospheric particles, and/or system noise) may be present in the data. An automated ground classification algorithm was used to determine bare earth point classification. It should be noted that not all returns were correctly classified; therefore the user should examine for acceptability.

                description:  The NOAA Office for Coastal Management (OCM) received files in las format. The files contained lidar elevation and intensity measurements of the Dry Tortugas, Florida. The data were in UTM Zone 17 coordinates and ellipsoid elevations in meters. The data classifications for the data are: 1 - unclassified, 2 - ground, 7 - topo noise, 26 - bathymetric bottom or submerged topography, 27 - water surface, 28 - submerged object and 30 - International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) S-57 objects. OCM performed the following processing on the data for Digital Coast storage and provisioning purposes: 1. Eliminated elevation outliers below -50 meters ellipsoid height 2. Converted from UTM Zone 17 to geographic coordinates 3. Sorted by gps time 4. Reclassified data class 29 to 28 5. Compressed the data using laszip
