Title: LiDAR and LiDAR-derived Products for Tenmile and Fifteenmile Creek, Idaho
Originators: Horizons, Inc.
Series identification: series

Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Horizons, Inc. was contracted by Bureau of Reclamation Boise to provide detailed high-accuracy data for hydraulic analysis and soil classification projects by the Bureau and the NRCS.  The project emcompassed an area of approximately 150 square miles.  LiDAR acquisition was obtained on December 9, 2003 at 8000' AMT by subcontractor EarthData Aviation. The Navajo Chieftain (tail number N62912) was equipped with an LH System ALS40 LiDAR system including an inertial measuring unit (IMU) and a dual frequency airborne GPS receiver.  LiDAR data was collected with a 2.0 to 2.2 meter nominal post spacing, 25 percent field of view and a 30 percent overlap. Ground control survey was conducted by subcontractor DJ&A of Missoula, MT. LiDAR data processing included processing of the raw LiDAR data through a minimum block algorithm to classify points as bare-earth or non-bare earth. Points were edited in 2D using imagery, intensity of the LiDAR reflection and tin-editing software to ensure accuracy of the automated feature classification. Final delivery included Acquisition/Processing Report, Flight Map, Raw LiDAR data, Intensity Image, Bare Earth DEM and First Return DEM.
Purpose:
The data will be used to provide high-accuracy data for hydraulic analysis and soil classification projects.

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.0
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
