GCE-LTER Data Set Summary

Accession: GIS-GCES-1401d Research Theme: Geospatial Analysis (Directed Study)
Contributors: Christine M. Hladik, Merryl Alber
Title: Corrected LIDAR-derived digital elevation model of the Duplin River 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). A 1 m spatial resolution gridded digital elevation models (DEM) was produced from these data. The accuracy of the DEM was assessed using real time kinematic (RTK) GPS ground reference data and elevations were corrected following the method of Hladik and Alber (2012).
