coastal ga elevation project cgep
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
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
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
