The article outlines the data acquisition, processing and validation of the Taiwan's Ministry of the Interior-supported project. The project utilized an airborne bathymetric lidar to map the Dongsha Atoll and a portion of the Penghu Islands off the western coast of Taiwan in the Taiwan Strait. The HawkEye II system arrived in Taiwan in August 2010. The team conducted a calibration flight at beginning and the end of the survey. The test flights and calibration verification were all carried out at Penghu. The first part of data calibration is the internal calibration of the HawkEye II, which is carried out in the manufacturer's laboratory. Penghu has four GPS base stations: CIME, WIAN, HUSI and JIBE. They are all enhanced GPS tracking stations owned by National Land Surveying and Mapping Center, Ministry of Interior, Taiwan.
