Abstract

High-resolution LiDAR survey covers an area of 170 km2 located 10 miles southwest of State College, Pennsylvania. The data collection was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and performed by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) during peak leaf-on and leaf-off conditions in 2010 (July 2010 and December 2010, respectively). The dataset contains point cloud tiles in LAS format, 1 m Digital Surface Model (DSM) derived using first-stop points, 1 m Digital Elevation Model (DEM) derived using ground-class points and 1 m hill shade dataset derived from DEM. These datasets were used to estimate vegetation biomass and distributions, provide bare earth elevations, and to assist with prediction of Critical Zone creation and structure. Horizontal coordinate system UTM 18N NAD83 meters, vertical coordinate system NAVD88.
