Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
All ground control processing and adjustment was performed using published coordinate horizontal and vertical datums (e.g. NGS CORS). For deliverables, Corpscon for Windows Version 5.11.08 (geoid 03) was used for horizontal and vertical datum conversion as well as for coordinate system conversion purposes (e.g. UTM to State Plane). The horizontal accuracy baseline spec was for the data to meet or exceed a 3.8 ft horizontal accuracy at the 95% confidence level using RMSE(r) X 1.7308 as defined by the FGDC Geospatial Positioning Accuracy Standards, Part 3: NSSDA. The horizontal accuracies for each block were tested. To obtain the tested horizontal accuracy, please refer to the Survey Report for each block, which may be accessed at: Block 1: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_1/> Block 2: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_2/> Block 3: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_3/> Block 4: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_4/> Block 5: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_5/> Block 6: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_6/> Block 7: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_7/> Block 8: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_8/> Block 9: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_9/> Block 10: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_10/> To determine which block or blocks are in your area of interest, download ch2mhill_block_index_shapefile.zip at: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/>
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The accuracy assessment was performed using a standard method to compute the root mean square error (RMSE) based on a comparison of ground control points (GCP) and filtered LiDAR data points. Filtered LiDAR data has had vegetation and cultural features removed and by analysis represents bare-earth elevations. The RMSE figure was used to compute the vertical National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy (NSSDA). Ground control was established by 3001, Inc. A spatial proximity analysis was used to select edited LiDAR data points contiguous to the relevant GCPs. A search radius decision rule is applied with consideration of terrain complexity, cumulative error and adequate sample size. Cumulative error results from the errors inherent in the various sources of horizontal measurement. These sources include the airborne GPS, GCPs and the uncertainty of the accuracy of the LiDAR data points. This accuracy is achieved prior to the sub-sampling that occurs through integration with the inertial measurement unit (IMU) positions that are recorded. It is unclear at this time whether the initial accuracy is maintained. The horizontal accuracy of the GCPs is estimated to be in the range of approximately 1 to 1.6 inches. Finally, sample size was considered. The specification for the National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy is a minimum of 20 points to conduct a statistically significant accuracy evaluation (Minnesota Planning, 1999, Positional Accuracy Handbook, Minnesota Planning Land Management Information Center, St. Paul, Minnesota., p.3). Most statistical texts indicate that a minimum of 30 sample points provide a reasonable Approximation of a normal distribution. The intent of the NSSDA is to reflect the geographic area of interest and the distribution of error in the data set (Federal Geographic Data Committee, 1998, Geospatial National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy, Federal Geographic Data Committee Secretariat, Reston, Virginia, p.3-4). Additional steps were taken to ensure the vertical accuracy of the LiDAR data including: Step 1: Precision Bore sighting (Check Edge-matching) Step 2: Compare the LiDAR data to the Field Survey (Field survey is to FEMA specifications and more stringent internal specifications) Step 3: Automated Filtering Step 4: Manual Editing (Quality Control) Step 5: 3-D digitizing and Photogrammetric Compilation of hydrographic breaklines. The vertical accuracy baseline spec was for the data to meet a fundamental vertical accuracy of 0.60 ft at the 95% confidence level using RMSE(z) X 1.9600 (as defined by the ASPRS Guidelines: Vertical Accuracy Reporting for Lidar Data"). The vertical accuracies for each block were tested. To obtain the tested vertical accuracy, please refer to the Survey or Vertical Accuracy Report for each block, which may be accessed at: Block 1: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_1/> Block 2: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_2/> Block 3: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_3/> Block 4: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_4/> Block 5: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_5/> Block 6: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_6/> Block 7: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_7/> Block 8: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_8/> Block 9: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_9/> Block 10: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/block_10/> To determine which block or blocks are in your area of interest, download ch2mhill_block_index_shapefile.zip at: <ftp://ftp.csc.noaa.gov/pub/crs/beachmap/qa_docs/fl/fdem/ch2mhill/>

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The Airborne Global Position System (ABGPS), inertial measurement unit (IMU), and raw scans are collected during the LiDAR aerial survey. The ABGPS monitors the xyz position of the sensor and the IMU monitors the orientation of the aircraft. During the aerial survey laser pulses reflected from features on the surface and are detected by the receiver optics and collected by the data logger. GPS locations are based on data collected by receivers on the aircraft and base stations on the ground. The ground base stations are placed no more than 20 km radius from the flight survey area.

Process_Description:
The unedited data are classified to facilitate the application of the appropriate feature extraction filters. A combination of proprietary filters is applied as appropriate for the production of bare-earth digital terrain models (DTMs). Interactive editing methods are applied to those areas where it is inappropriate or impossible to use the feature extraction filters, based upon the design criteria and/or limitations of the relevant filters. These same feature extraction filters are used to produce elevation height surfaces.

Process_Description:
Filtered and edited data are subjected to rigorous QA/QC according to the 3001 Inc. Quality Control Plan and procedures. Very briefly, a series of quantitative and visual procedures are employed to validate the accuracy and consistency of the filtered and edited data. Ground control is established by 3001, Inc. and GPS-derived ground control points (GCPs) points in various areas of dominant and prescribed land cover. These points are coded according to landcover, surface material and ground control suitability. A suitable number of points are selected for calculation of a statistically significant accuracy assessment as per the requirements of the National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy. A spatial proximity analysis is used to select edited LiDAR data points within a specified distance of the relevant GCPs. A search radius decision rule is applied with consideration of terrain complexity, cumulative error and adequate sample size. Accuracy validation and evaluation is accomplished using proprietary software to apply relevant statistical routines for calculation of Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) and the National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy (NSSDA) according to Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) specifications.
