William Pfeiffer
Purpose
To acquire ground control data for LIDAR mapping.
Information to be Derived
Ground Elevation and vegetation heights referenced to control point  Pt. Mark
on the Chandeleur Islands in various ground cover environments.
Summary
Established 5 temporary control points tied to  Pt. Mark  using differential
GPS.  These control points were used as reference marks for station
establishment of the total station.  The total station was used to obtain
ground elevations referenced to the WGS84 ellipsoid in six different ground
cover
Environments including: bare earth; shallow water; emergent vegetation; tall 
vegetation; short vegetation and mangrove scrub.
Notes
University of New Orleans will revisit some of the same sites using Real Time 
Kinematic (RTK) GPS during the actual mapping flights.
