Abstract
The Scottish Public Sector LiDAR (Phase I) dataset was commissioned in response to the Flood Risk Management Act (2009) by the Scottish Government, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), and Scottish Water collaboratively. Airborne LiDAR data was collected across 10 sites totalling 11,845 km2 (note the dataset does not have full national coverage) between March 2011 and May 2012. 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 and Scottish Water collectively in 2011, the contract was awarded to Atkins, and the LiDAR data was collected and delivered by Blom. Airborne LiDAR was collected between March 2011 and May 2012 for 10 collection areas. The point density was a minimum of 1 point/sqm, and approximately 2 points/sqm on average between the collection areas. By July 2012 Blom had delivered raw LAS files alongside Digital Terrain and Digital Surface Models at 1m resolution (ESRI Grid and ASCII format). They also provided reports detailing the height accuracy and point density for each collection area.
