Access_Constraints: None
Use_Constraints:
Users should be aware that temporal changes may have occurred since this data set was collected and some parts of this data may no longer represent actual surface conditions. Users should not use this data for critical applications without a full awareness of its limitations. These data depict the heights at the time of the survey and are only accurate for that time.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report: Not available beyond what is reported for positional accuracy.
Logical_Consistency_Report: Unknown
Completeness_Report:
Accuracy was ensured with an independent quality assurance evaluation.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
68.2% of laser returns are accurate to .30 meters (1 foot). This is assessed by the laser manufacturer and is a product of flying height (1/3000th of flying height).
Quantitative_Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Assessment:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Value: .30
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Explanation: Horizontal accuracy in meters
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The islands of Oahu, Kauai, and Hawaii were tested and found to have the following accuracies. Kauai LiDAR dataset tested .98ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in open terrain, based on open terrain RMSEz (.50ft) x 1.9600; tested .88ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in all land cover categories combined, based on consolidated RMSEz (.45ft) x 1.9600. Oahu LiDAR dataset tested .69ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in open terrain, based on open terrain RMSEz (.35ft) x 1.9600; tested .73ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in all land cover categories combined, based on consolidated RMSEz (.37ft) x 1.9600. Hawaii LiDAR dataset tested .51ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in open terrain, based on open terrain RMSEz (.26ft) x 1.9600; tested .69ft vertical accuracy at 95% confidence level in all land cover categories combined, based on consolidated RMSEz (.35ft) x 1.9600. Independent accuracy testing was performed by Dewberry & Davis using 80 high accuracy quality control checkpoints distributed throughout the project in four major land cover types (open terrain, weeds/crops, forest, urban). Dewberry used testing procedures consistent with those specified in the National Standard for Spatial Data Accuracy (NSSDA) as well as LiDAR accuracy testing guidelines and specifications published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), National Digital Elevation Program (NDEP), and American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS).

Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Lidar data were collected by Airborne 1 under subcontract to URS by FEMA. Data were checked for quality by Dewberry and Davis.
Process_Date: 2006
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Lidar data were processed by Coastal Services Center for incorporation into the Digital Coast. Coordinates were converted to geographic latitude and longitude using the General Cartographic Transform Program algorithms. Elevations were converted from orthometric heights to heights on the NAD83 ellipsoid using the NGS GEOID03 model. Height units were converted to meters from feet.
