Description The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducts baseline and storm-response photography missions to document and understand the changes in the vulnerability of the Nation's coasts to extreme storms. On June 09, 2017, the USGS conducted an oblique aerial photographic survey of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility (USACE FRF), located in Duck, North Carolina, aboard a Cessna 182 aircraft at an altitude of approximately 1000 feet (ft). This mission was conducted to collect data for USACE FRF Duck Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Open Field Experiment, carried out June 5–21, 2017. The photographs provided are Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) and Nikon Electronic Format (NEF) images. The photograph locations are an estimate of the aircraft's position and do not indicate the location of the feature in the images. These photographs document the configuration of the USACE FRF at the time of the survey. ExifTool (version 4.0) was used to add the following to the header of each photograph: time of collection, GPS latitude, GPS longitude, keywords, credit, artist (photographer), caption, copyright, and contact information. JPEG photographs can be opened with any JPEG-compatible image viewer. All image times are recorded in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). In addition to the photographs, a Google Earth Keyhole Markup Language (KML) file is provided and can be used to view the images by clicking on the marker and then the thumbnail or the link above the thumbnail. This KML, 2017-033-FA.kml, can be found in [More]
