Project: Southern Cass-Clay LIDAR Survey
Description: Southern Cass County, North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota: LIDAR and black and white imagery were acquired for a 138 square mile area in southern Cass County, North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota, for use in a FEMA funded Flood Insurance Restudy for the Red River of the North, Wild Rice River (ND), and Wolverton Creek. Houston Engineering, Inc. contracted with Horizons, Inc. to acquire the data. Funding for the project was provided by the City of Fargo, Cass County, North Dakota State Water Commission, Buffalo-Red River Watershed District, and Clay County.
The data was collected during two flight operations in April, 1999. The first flight operation was conducted to obtain black and white aerial photography for planimetric mapping and orthophoto production. The second flight operation was conducted to obtain the LIDAR data. 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.
