    Collection Overview: NCALM logo This dataset, located within the San Bernardino Mountains, CA, was collected as an NCALM Seed grant for Jesse Waco, San Jose State University, Geology Department to support an investigation of topographic stress control on subsurface weathered zone and seismic site conditions in southern California. The requested survey area is located approximately 25 km northwest of Palm Springs, CA. The polygon encloses approximately 64 km2. Note: A considerable percentage of the points in this dataset were classified as "building" (LAS class 6) although visual inspection indicates these points are mostly above-ground vegetation. For the purposes of distribution through OpenTopography, these points have been grouped with "unclassified" (LAS class 1) points to reduce point cloud classification to either "ground" or "unclassified" below.
