Lidar point cloud, GNSS, and raster data from near St. Helena, CA, March 30 and August 1, 2017

October 13, 2021

Text files: These data are text files of GNSS survey points collected along a trace of the West Napa Fault Zone near Ehler?s Lane north of St. Helena, California. Data were collected to aid in paleoseismic investigation of the suspected fault strand and to characterize local geomorphology. Data were collected on March 31, and August 1, 2017 using a Leica Viva GS15 survey grade GPS. The data are delivered as positions in the NAD83 UTM zone 10N coordinate system with orthometric heights according to Geoid 12B. LAZ files: These data are point clouds from terrestrial lidar data collected along a trace of the West Napa Fault Zone near Ehler?s Lane north of St. Helena, California. Data were collected to aid in paleoseismic investigation of the suspected fault strand and to characterize local geomorphology. Point cloud data were collected on March 31, and August 1, 2017. The data were collected pre-paleoseismic investigation along a north-trending elongate rounded hill within Napa Valley, thought to represent the northern trace of the West Napa Fault, and then concurrent with paleoseismic investigation, overlapping and extending 200 m to the east of the first data set, to better characterize local fluvial history. Data were collected with a Riegl VZ400 terrestrial laser scanner and georeferenced using a Leica Viva GS15 survey grade GPS. The data are delivered as georeferenced (NAD83 UTM zone 10N orthometric) classified point clouds. Raster Data: These data are 10-cm GeoTiff rasters of ground elevations from terrestrial lidar data collected along a trace of the West Napa Fault Zone near Ehlers Lane north of St. Helena, California.
