These Lidar data were collected on October 5-7, 2006 by Watershed Sciences Incorporated for the Puget Sound Lidar Consortium, with funding from the US Bureau of Reclamation and Oregon Trout in collaboration with the Malheur National Forest. The survey areas cover the floodplains of Desolation Creek from the mouth to Bruin Creek, the Middle Fork John Day River from just upstream of Big Creek to Summit Creek, and the John Day River from Prairie City to just above Dans Creek. The study areas total ~9,149 acres. These lidar were acquired for all the areas identified for the purpose of stream channel assessment and potential stream restoration design.
