The objective is to acquire bare-earth digital topographic data and intensity returns of three sites in North Carolina using airborne LIDAR to support research concerning the effect of LIDAR point spacing/density on the characterization of topographic variation and its effect on hydrologic and hydraulic (H&H) modeling results for improved flood plain mapping. Data shall be collected on the North Fork French Broad River, McAlpine Creek and Middle Creek. There shall be no hard copies of the solicitation, technical specification, or drawings. All of the aforementioned information with respect to this acquisition will only be available electronically at the following address:
