This Digital Surface Model (DSM) is created using linear interpolation applied on highest return per unity ground, as acquired during the LiDAR campaign. The helicopter-based survey of the Rio San Francisco catchment has been conducted in the periods of March 7-17, 2012 and November 12-19, 2012. Coordinate System UTM, Datum WGS84, Zone 17S, and Geoid EGM96 - for orthometric height - are used. The horizontal accuracy is within 5cm (based on control landmark of the IGM geodetic network). Quality assurance is done by visually inspection and correction of classification and ghost reflections. Additional quality control is done for completeness of the point cloud density and for models creation, which assured internal consistency of terrain representation (removal of artifacts due to misclassification) and seamless integration between tiles. Total data extent, considering all tiles is W: 704190.00, S: 9552910.00, N: 718190.00, E:9564110.00. The DSM has the spatial resolution of 1m. The LiDAR survey has been carried out under the working group of Prof. J. Bendix. Operational support and quality check: Jörg Zeilinger, Brenner Silva, Thomaz Lotz
Additional Infos:
The zip-file contains 257 ARC/INFO ASCII files of 700x700 meter. The usage of these data is restricted to the RU816 members and publication of these data or analysis based on them has to be agreed in advance with Prof. J. Bendix.
