Supplemental Information

The DGGS metadata standard extends the FGDC standard to include elements that are required to facilitate our internal data management. These elements, referred to as "layers," group and describe files that have intrinsic logical or topological relationships and correspond to subdirectories within the data distribution package. The metadata layer provides an FGDC metadata file and may include other documentation files. Attribute information for each data layer is described in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribute_Information" section. Data layer contents:
 >point cloud data - all returns - classified: Classified (ASPRS standard) LiDAR values for all returns (distributed in LAZ format), data have been classified to Ground (class 2) and Default (class 1).
 >las-index: polygons that serve as an index to the spatial location and extent of each point cloud (LAS) bin
 >border: polygon that encompasses the maximum geographic extent of the data observations
 >dsm: digital surface model (first return), 1 meter resolution, single band raster
 >dsm_hs: hillshade of digital surface model (first return), 1 meter resolution, three band raster
 >dtm: digital terrain model (bare earth), 1 meter resolution, single band raster
 >dtm_hs: hillshade of digital terrain model (first return), 1 meter resolution, three band raster

Metadata

Metadata is the data about the data and answers "Who, what, when, where, how and why?" about the dataset. Please see the DGGS Metadata README page for information about our metadata.
