The EPSCoR MILES program builds Idaho's capacity to study complex social-ecological processes, especially those associated with water demand and valuation of ecosystem services. This research characterizes patterns and identifies social drivers of urban growth and ecological change, including valuable ecosystem services.

LiDAR and LiDAR-derived Products for North Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

This is a collection level metadata record for Light Detection Ranging (LiDAR) data and derived products for the northern area of Coeur d'Alene in northern Idaho. Data were collected to aid the Kootenai Shore Soil and Water Conservation District, Idaho Water Resource Research Institute (University of Idaho), the Forestry Sciences Laboratory (USFS), and was funded by the Idaho EPSCoR project Managing Idaho's Landscape for Ecosystem Services (MILES) in assessing the topographic and geophysical properties of the study area. Data covers the Fernan (14,650.2 acres), Blue Creek (8,941.8 acres), and Wolf Lodge (8,402.5 acres) project areas. The lidar survey was conducted by vendor Quantum Spatial Inc. based in Corvallis OR. Lidar instruments Leica ALS70 & ALS80 were flown in a Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft on 12/14/2014 and 02/11/15 - 02/13/2015. The vertical accuracy of the dataset is 0.034 m (0.113 ft). and the line to line relative vertical accuracy is 0.019 m (0.069ft). This collection includes compressed LAS files (LAZ); rasters for bare earth at 1.0m resolution (13 ESRI rasters), highest hit at 1.0m resolution (13 ESRI rasters), intensity images at 0.5m resolution (13 GeoTIFFS); vectors for ground control points (3 shapefiles), study area and tile index (3 shapefiles), and smoothed best estimated trajectories for aircraft flights at one-second intervals (4 shapefiles). Each of these files is accompanied with its own xml metadata record which provide details about processing, quality, and use. In addition the final report provided by Quantum Spatial Inc. (pdf) is included in this collection and provides further details about the collection and processing of these data. For all these data the horizontal datum is NAD83 (2011), the vertical datum is NAVD88, Geoid12A, and it is projected in UTM Zone 11N and units are in meters.
