USGS National Range Building

By • Jun 18th, 2010 • Category: Highlights

As part of the USGS Quality Assurance (QA) Plan for Digital Aerial Imagery, 5 National Ranges are being developed. Here is the status of 3 of the ranges with discussions ongoing for potential range agreements on the East and West Coast; e.g., States of California and North Carolina.

  • Sioux Falls, South Dakota: The survey data has been collected and a range specification document is being started to document the South Dakota range.
  • Rolla, Missouri: The survey team is on track to complete the range survey in June 2010. We continue to coordinate weekly with USGS – Rolla and the local Government in Missouri. A range specification document will be started once the range survey is completed on-site by USGS staff within the next 2-3 weeks.
  • Pueblo, Colorado: The survey team is on track to complete the range survey in July 2010. We continue to coordinate weekly with the local Government. A range specification document will be started after the range survey is completed. The USGS Colorado Water Science Center has shown interest in the data submitted by data providers over the range for USGS Data Provider Evaluation.

Discussion and research of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) calibration and validation range requirements will be discussed next week at EROS with Elevation and Center for LiDAR Information Coordination and Knowledge (CLICK) projects.
