Project: Clay County Flood Insurance LIDAR survey
Description: LIDAR and black and white imagery were acquired for an 86 square mile area in southwest Clay County, Minnesota, for use in a Flood Insurance Study for the Buffalo River. Clay County contracted with Horizons, Inc. to acquire the data. Funding for the project was provided by FEMA Region V through the Cooperating Technical Partners (CTP) Program.
The data was collected during two flight operations. The first flight operation was conducted in November, 2002 to obtain the LIDAR data. The second flight operation was conducted in December, 2002 to obtain black and white aerial photography for planimetric mapping and orthophoto production. Final deliverables included a LIDAR DEM, break lines, 1-foot contour drawings in AutoCAD format, and black and white digital orthophotos. There are no restrictions on data distribution for his project.
