Project: Rainy River LIDAR data collection
Description: Rainey River: Lake of the Woods, MN to Fort Frances, MN.
In November of 2006, Sanborn was contracted by the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, St. Louis District on behalf of the St. Paul District to execute a
LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) aerial survey, ground control survey
and mapping for a segment of Rainy River. The project is situated on the
northern border of Minnesota and consists of an corridor that extends 2000
feet on both sides of Rainy River (total width of 4000 feet). The corridor
extends from the International Dam at Fort Frances and International Falls to
its mouth of Rainy River at Lake-of-the-Woods.
This data will be used by US Army Corps of Engineers - St. Paul District to perform hydraulic/hydrologic modeling for analysis and development.
