Abstract
The Scottish Public Sector LiDAR (Phase II) dataset was commissioned in response to the Flood Risk Management Act (2009) by the Scottish Government, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), sportscotland, and 13 Scottish local authorities. This extension of the Phase I dataset collected airborne LiDAR for 66 additional sites for the purposes of localised flood management. Data was collected between 29th November 2012 and 18th April 2014 totalling an area of 3,516 km2 (note the dataset does not have full national coverage). Aside from flood risk management, this data has also been used for archaeological and orienteering purposes. This dataset reflects the LAS format point cloud data.

Statement
Commissioned by the Scottish Government, SEPA, sportscotland, and 13 Scottish local authorities collectively in 2012, the project was managed by Sniffer and the contract awarded to Fugro BKS. The LiDAR data was collected from an aircraft between 29th November 2012 and 18th April 2014 for 66 sites covering 3,516 km2. The point density was a minimum of 1 point/sqm, and approximately 2 points/sqm on average between the 66 sites. On July 5th 2014 Fugro BKS delivered the raw LAS files alongside DTM and DSMs at 1m resolution in ESRI Grid and ASCII format. They also provided reports detailing the height accuracy for each site.
