    Collection Overview: NOAA logoGreater San Diego Resilient Coastlines Project logo The bluff along the City of Solana Beach's (California) shore was scanned using ground-based static lidar technology between August and September of 2016. The primary objective of the Solana Beach Bluff Characterization Survey is to develop a baseline condition that can be compared to future surveys, allowing the City to monitor the bluff condition and to quantify coastal erosion. The information can also support coastal planning and engineering studies. The project consisted of 63 scans, all independently registered to surveyed control points. The parameters of the scans were set so the density of the scan point clouds was no more than 3" minimum spacing on the bluff with a positional certainty of better than 3". The polygon encloses approximately 0.01 km2.
