2009 - 2011 OLC Lidar DEM: Deschutes (OR)

Watershed Sciences, Inc. collected Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data of the Deschutes Study Area for the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI).The dataset covers portions of Deschutes, Crook, Jefferson, Klamath, Lake, and Lane counties in Oregon. The study area totals 2899 square miles (1,855,159 acres). The data were collected in 17 deliveries, from 2009 through 2011. The bare earth digital elevation model (DEM) represents the earth's surface with all vegetation and human-made structures removed. The bare earth DEMs were derived from lidar data using TIN processing of the ground point returns. The DEM grid cell size is 3 feet. Some elevation values have been interpolated across areas in the models where there is no elevation data (e.g. over water, over dense vegetation). In addition to the bare earth DEMs, the topobathy lidar point data are also available. These data are available for custom download here: https://coast.noaa.gov/dataviewer/#/lidar/search/where:ID=8397

access_constraints ["Use Constraints: In some areas of heavy vegetation or forest cover, there may be relatively few ground points in the LiDAR data. TINing the points produces large triangles and hence the elevations may be less accurate within such areas. In some areas with large bodies of water, competing water surface levels may be visible. This is due to seasonal water level fluctuation and intervals of time between acquisition of an area. Users should be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this dataset was collected and that some parts of these data may no longer represent actual surface conditions. Users should not use these data for critical applications without a full awareness of its limitations.", "Access Constraints: None"]
