These are Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data for WVSA PA 2017 Impervious Surface Lidar task as part of the required deliverables for WVSA PA 2017 Impervious Surface project. Class 2 (ground) lidar points in conjunction with the hydro breaklines and bridge breaklines were used to create a 1 foot hydro-flattened Raster DEM.Geographic Extent: This task order requires lidar data to be acquired over an AOI surrounding Wilkes-Barre, PA (+/- 401.5 square miles) Dataset Description: WVSA, PA – 2017 Impervious Surface project called for the Planning, Acquisition, processing and derivative products of lidar data to be collected at a nominal pulse spacing (NPS) of 0.35 meter. Project specifications are based on the U.S. Geological Survey National Geospatial Program Base Lidar Specification, Version 1.2. The data was developed based on a horizontal projection/datum of NAD83(2011) State Plane Pennsylvania North FIPS3701 Ft US. The vertical datum of NAVD88 Geoid12B Ft US. Lidar data was delivered as flightline-extent unclassified LAS swaths, as processed Classified LAS 1.4 files, formatted to 1792 individual 2500 ft x 2500 ft tiles, as tiled Intensity Imagery, and as tiled bare earth DEMs; all tiled to the same 2500 ft x 2500 ft schema.Ground Conditions: Lidar was collected between November 23, 2017 and December 8, 2017 by Woolpert, while no snow was on the ground and rivers were at or below normal levels. In order to post process the lidar data to meet task order specifications and meet ASPRS vertical accuracy guidelines, Woolpert established 35 ground control points that were used to calibrate the lidar to known ground locations established throughout the project area. Additional independent accuracy checkpoints were collected (35 NVA points and 23 VVA points) and used to assess the vertical accuracy of the data. These checkpoints were not used to calibrate or post process the data.
