Abstract :

The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) Remote Sensing Division develops new workflows and processing methods for government owned and contractor acquired Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) systems with the objective to modernize and improve the National Spatial Reference System. Ensuring data quality is one way to improve survey efficiency and accuracy. Using tools such as GeoCue, TerraSolid and Bentley Microstation, our team has been performing quality control reviews and manual edits to the bathymetric lidar data for the Florida��?s Outer Reef. This poster will show a workflow of the LIDAR applications, with an emphasis on quality control, for coastal products that are used by the surveying, hydrographic, navigation, and coastal communities.
