ABSTRACT:
Watershed Sciences, Inc. (WSI) collected Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data on October 27th, 28th and November 1st, 2011 for the United States Forest Service and Environmental Protection Agency. This study includes bare-earth, highest hit, vegetation height, and intensity grids. The raw point cloud data is available on request, due to massive size of the data. Derived entities include aspect, percent slope, hill shades (bare-earth and high hits), flow accumulation grid, and contours. The coverage of this area is only for the Upper Blue River watershed, but combined with the Andrews Forest LiDAR (GI010) provides complete coverage of the Blue River Watershed.
