This is a terrestrial LiDAR laser scanner dataset of an intermittent waterway named Laguna Creek near the community of Dennehotso, AZ collected on June 2, 2020. The reach scanned for this study is located at the bridge where State Route 160 crosses the waterway. The river channel on the upstream side of the bridge has experienced bank erosion over recent years. A bank stabilization project was implemented by the Arizona Department of Transportation in 2018. This scan is intended to capture the condition of the bank in 2020 and be used to measure any changes to the bank protection that has occurred since the installation.. A Leica MS-60 Multistation was used for the laser scanner data collection. Multiple scans were combined by setting up the scanner using resection techniques coupled with Leica RTK - GPS equipment. All scan data are corrected using measurements of a reference mark with a known location that has been used for prior surveying projects.
