LiDAR data was collected by the UK Environment Agency on 17th June 2006 as part of the Network for Calibration and Validation of EO data (NCAVEO) 2006 Field Campaign. The data was collected from a Cessna 404 aircraft carrying an Optech 3100 LiDAR. The sensor was integrated with the on-board navigation system to provide accurate geometric correction through post-processing. The LiDAR was operated at 33 kHz to give a nominal pulse spacing around 1-2 m, and intensity plus first and last pulse returns were recorded. For further information please see the LiDAR survey report in linked documentation and the dataset's metadata document.

Access rules:
Access to these data is available to any registered CEDA user. Please Login or Register for an account to gain access.
Use of these data is covered by the following licence: When using these data you must cite them correctly using the citation given on the CEDA Data Catalogue record.
Data lineage:

These data were provided to NEODC by university of Southampton, who carried out work to convert formats to NASA-Ames, and write metadata documents. The metadata documents describing the processing are archived alongside the data as PDF files.

Data Quality:
Mostly unknown, but some quality statements are provided in metadata files archived alongside the data.
File Format:
LiDAR catalogue data is in shape file format and raster datasets and files within the \xyz\ directory are in ASCII Grid format. All are ArcView compatible. Metadata about data collection, processing, filtering and comparison of collected data to independent ground truth data is also included in the LiDAR report of the survey.
