Description: Methods: This LiDAR derivative provides information about the bare surface of the earth. The 3-foot resolution raster was produced from 2018 Quality Level 2 and 2020 Quality Level 1 LiDAR point cloud data (already ground classified) using Lastools. The processing steps were as follows:--Create Tiles (lastile)--Create DTM from ground classified points (las2dem)Note that this DTM is neither hydro-flattened nor hydro-enforced.Uses and Limitations:The DTM provides a raster depiction of the ground returns for each 3x3 foot raster cell across Santa Cruz County. The layer is useful for hydrologic and terrain-focused analysis. The DTM will be most accurate in open terrain and less accurate in areas of very dense vegetation.
