One foot contours developed from Delta LIDAR. LIDAR was developed under a contract between California DWR and URS Corporation (DRMS contract), with Fugro EarthData as lead LIDAR survey contractor. Flights were conducted in 2007 with 9% reflown in 2008. Final products delivered to DWR in 2009. Survey points of accuracy theoretically capable of supporting 1 foot contours. Using processed bare earth point data, Fugro EarthData generated/supplied these contours in raw and smoothed format, and the feature class here are smoothed contours.
The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s water resources. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the State’s people and to protect, restore and enhance the natural and human environments.
