LiDAR Data Collection Phase Grande Ronde River Basin
Watershed Sciences, Inc. collected Light Detection and Ranging data (LiDAR) of the Grande Ronde River basin study area for the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC). The requested LiDAR Area of Interest (AOI) totals approximately 67,985 acres, and was buffered to ensure data coverage, resulting in a Total Area Flown (TAF) of 80,324 acres. Specifically, flight paths covered all stream and river corridors that were known to be spring Chinook Salmon spawning and rearing habitat above the city of La Grande in the Grande Ronde watershed and above the town of Union in the Catherine Creek watershed.
