High Accuracy Elevation Data - Lake Okeechobee Littoral Zone
Entry ID: USGS_SOFIA_HAED_okee


Summary
Abstract: The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) coordinated the acquisition of high accuracy elevation data (meters) for the Lake Okeechobee Littoral Zone collected on a 400 meter topographic grid with a vertical accuracy of +/- 15 centimeters. The elevations are referenced to the horizontal North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83) and vertical North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88). The topographic surveys ... View entire text
