Title: LiDAR and LiDAR-derived Products for National Park Service Areas of Interest, Idaho
Originators: Coeur d'Alene Tribe
Series identification: series
Publisher: Coeur d'Alene Tribe
Publication place: Plummer, ID USA
Publication date: 20081204
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
LiDAR data processed by the Coeur d'Alene Tribe for the National Park Service.  The LiDAR data was collected by Terrapoint USA Inc. between November 16th and December 4th, 2008. This LiDAR project's purpose was to provide high accuracy, classified multiple return LiDAR, for approximately 89 square miles, in North Idaho.  Part of the collection was over the Coeur d'Alene Reservation, the remainder of the collection was done for the National Park Service for their areas of interest.  The LiDAR data was acquired and processed by Terrapoint USA to support engineering planning purposes. The product is a high density mass point dataset with an average point spacing of 0.7m. The original data was provided to the Coeur d'Alene Tribe in LAS 1.0 format.  A complete report of the data collection process can be found in a document entitled <a href="http://cloud.insideidaho.org/data/elevation/lidar/2008_npsAreasOfInterest/CDA_Tribes_Final_Project_Report.pdf" target="_blank">CDA_Tribes_Final_Project_Report.pdf</a>. The LiDAR dataset vertical accuracy ( z value) was 0.064m.
Purpose:
The National Park Service contracted with the Coeur d'Alene Tribe to coordinate and post process the LiDAR data.  The RAW LiDAR data was collected by Terrapoint USA. The primary purpose of the collection was to facilitate management of the National Park Service's areas of interest.

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.
