Summary

These datasets contain XYZ locations and other attributes of points from topographic bank surveys at six sites downstream from three dams on the Coosa River in Alabama, from October 2014 through July 2017. At the four sites downstream from H. Neely Henry and Walter Bouldin Dams, topographic data were collected using a motion-compensated LiDAR (MC-LiDAR) system mounted on a marine survey vessel equipped with an inertial navigation system (INS). Data were collected as the vessel traversed the river along a survey line near the site. Data collection software integrated and stored the range and angular measurements from the LiDAR, and the horizontal and vertical position and attitude data of the vessel from the INS in real time. Data processing [...]

Purpose

Topographic data were collected within the study area to capture the geomorphological characteristics of the above-water portions of the river bank. These data are intended for science researchers, policy makers, and hydraulic engineers interested in assessing the condition of the channel bank, and to monitor changes with time. The bmp file was included to provide a preview of the difference data contained in these datasets.
