Description

Digital elevation models for Young et al. (In Press, 2018).

Extent

1 digital object.

Methods

Airborne lidar datasets were collected on 6-October-2015 and 22-March-2016 using the MASS (Modular Aerial Sensing System [Reineman et al., 2009; Melville et al., 2016]) outfitted with a Riegl Q680i scanning lidar and Novatel SPAN-LN200 GPS-IMU. Vertical and horizontal lidar point accuracy was estimated from the boresight calibration at 1.8-2.4 cm, and 5.7-11.2 cm respectively. Lidar data were processed into 1-m resolution digital elevation models.
