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.
