GCE-LTER Data Set Summary

Accession: GIS-GCES-1401b Research Theme: Geospatial Analysis (Directed Study)
Contributors: Christine M. Hladik, Merryl Alber
Title: LIDAR data of the Duplin River and Blackbeard creek salt marshes
Abstract: LIDAR (light detection and ranging) data were acquired on March 9-10, 2009 by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) for the Duplin River (35 km2) and Blackbeard Creek (19 km2) salt marshes. The deliverables provided by NCALM included the raw LAS point clouds and acii text files.
