Project: Carver County Digital Orthophotography and LIDAR Acquisition
Description: This dataset includes color digital orthophotograpy at 0.5' ground sample distance in .tif format tiled by sections. A county wide resample at 1' was generated in a mosiac MrSID gen2 format. LIDAR datasets include Thinned "Bare Earth" and Process "Surface" Point Cloud (All Points). A Digital Terrain Model was created from the LIDAR using enhancements from breaklines and/or mass points where necessary. 2 foot contours were generated from the enhanced DTM. The DTM and 2 ft contours are available in CAD and GIS formats.
