Classified point cloud data from the 2005 B4 Lidar Project, southern California

January 10, 2018

This data set is derived from the original 2005 data collected over the southern San Andreas and San Jacinto fault zones in southern California, USA. These data have provided a fundamental resource for study of active faulting in southern California since they were released in 2005. However, these data were not classified in a manner that allowed for easy differentiation between bare ground surfaces and the objects and vegetation above that surface. This reprocessed (classified) dataset allows researchers easy and direct access to a "bare-earth" digital elevation data set as gridded half-meter resolution rasters (elevation and shaded relief), "full-feature" digital elevation models as gridded one-meter resolution rasters (elevation and shaded relief) and as classified (according to ASPRS standards) point clouds in binary .laz format, and a spatial index in shapefile and Google Earth KML format.
