    Ga. DNR-CRD


Coastal ga elevation project cgep l.jpg

Coastal Ga. Elevation Project (CGEP)

  • Consolidation of Partnerships by CGRDC

  • Specifications and Deliverables:

    • LAS Point cloud & Bare earth points

    • Digital elevation Model

    • Hydro Breaklines

  • NOAA CSC to handle contracting/vendors

  • Acquisition Time-Frame

    • Fall-Winter 2009-10, leaf-off season

  • Funding:

    • USGS Assistance award to Coastal RC

    • FEMA

    • Ga. DNR, Coastal Resources Division

    • State/local/other contributions

  • Contact: Chris Chalmers, CGRC


Georgia mountains elevation project l.jpg

Georgia Mountains Elevation Project

  • Assistance Award to Ga. Mtns. RDC

  • LiDAR (and ortho-imagery) acquired in select N. Ga. counties during late winter 2009.

    • Primarily ‘FEMA Compliant’

    • 18.5 cm, 1.4m post spacing

    • Suitable for 2 ft. contours in most areas (somewhat less accurate in forested areas)

  • Delivery expected late summer / fall 2009.


Atlanta regional ortho lidar l.jpg

Atlanta Regional Ortho/LiDAR

  • Assistance Award to ARC, 25% USGS contribution

  • Majority of funds from local sources

  • ARC to release RFP in early Nov. 2009

  • Elevation (liDAR) suitable for 2 ft. contours (min), 18.5cm, 0.5ppm, hydro breaks

  • Ortho Imagery, 6 in. color

  • Originally targeting 20-county area.

  • Final footprint now 8-9 counties.

  • Acquisition: Winter 2009-10

    Contact:

    • Tim McGuire, ARC

    • Keith McFadden, USGS
