Abstract:
Mosaics of PAMAP DEMs by PAMAP Lidar Delivery Zones -

This dataset, produced by the PAMAP Program, consists of a raster digital elevation model with a horizontal ground resolution of 3.2 feet.  The model was constructed from PAMAP LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) elevation points. PAMAP data are organized into blocks, which do not have gaps or overlaps, that represent 10,000 feet by 10,000 feet on the ground. The coordinate system for blocks in the northern half of the state is Pennsylvania State Plane North (datum:NAD83, units: feet); blocks in the southern half of the state are in Pennsylvania State Plane South. A block name is formed by concatenating the first four digits of the State Plane northing and easting defining the block's northwest corner, the State identifier "PA", and the State Plane zone designator "N" or "S" (e.g. 45001210PAS).
Purpose:
General-purpose aerial topographic survey of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Topographic data are useful for a variety of scientific and resource management applications such as hydrologic modeling, resource monitoring, mapping, global change research, and landscape visualization.
