Photogrammetry-derived digital surface model and orthoimagery of land areas near Resurrection Bay, Alaska

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

The State of Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) produced a digital surface model (DSM) and an orthorectified aerial optical image mosaic (orthoimagery) of the Resurrection Bay watershed, surrounding the city of Seward in south-central Alaska. Aerial photographs and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data were collected on August 13, 2015, and were processed using Structure-from-Motion (SfM) photogrammetric techniques to create the DSM and orthoimagery. All data are projected in UTM Zone 6 North (meters) using the NAD83 (2011; EPSG 26906) horizontal datum and NAVD88 (Geoid12A; EPOCH 2010.00) vertical datum. The project was part of an ongoing investigation of the impact of flooding, slope instability, and cryosphere hazards on infrastructure and public safety. For the purpose of enabling open access to geospatial datasets in Alaska, this collection is being released as a Raw Data File with an open end-user license. All files can be downloaded free of charge from the DGGS website (http://doi.org/10.14509/29824). DSMs represent surface elevations of all surfaces, including vegetation, vegetation-free land, bridges, buildings, etc. The DSM is a single-band, 32-bit float GeoTIFF files using Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) compression, with a ground sample distance (GSD) of 0.41 m. The No Data value is set to -32767.
