Dataset: Cooper GBA region floodplain 2019 LiDAR extent



This dataset defines the 2019 LiDAR survey extent of the Cooper GBA region floodplain. The total area of survey is 31,780 kmĀ². The extent is shown in a map figure which accompanies this dataset. The survey was conducted to develop a Digital Elevation Model and to determine bathymetry which is required for a two-dimensional hydrodynamic flood inundation model of the Cooper Creek floodplain. GBA shall have full Intellectual Property rights and ownership of all contract generated material produced as part of this survey project.


Geological and Bioregional Assessment Program


The shapefile extent was developed to define the total area of LiDAR survey. The acquisition phases occurred over two mobilisations. The first mobilisation was flown from 20 March - 4 April, 2019 with an aircraft equipped with a Riegl LMS Q780 LiDAR system. The second mobilisation was flown from 6 - 17 October, 2019 with an aircraft equipped with a Riegl LMS Q1560 LiDAR system.
