USGS CoastCam at Madeira Beach, Florida: Timestack Imagery and Coordinate Data

Online link https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/catalog/spcmsc/madbeach_c1_timestacks_metadata.faq.html
Description A digital video camera was installed at Madeira Beach, Florida (FL) and faced west along the beach. Every hour during daylight hours, daily from 2017 to 2022, the camera collected raw video and produced snapshots and time-averaged image products. One such product is a "runup timestack". Runup timestacks are images created by sampling a cross-shore array of pixels from an image through time as waves propagate towards and run up a beach. Runup timestacks store the red, green, and blue or monochrome pixel intensity as a function of the cross-shore position as imagery for the sampling period, typically around 17 minutes. The images included in this data release were collected from January 21, 2017, to January 25, 2022. The camera is part of a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) research project to study the beach and nearshore environment. USGS researchers analyzed the timestack imagery collected from this camera to remotely sense information such as elevation of wave runup. This camera is part of the USGS CoastCam network, supported by the Total Water Level/Coastal Change Project under the Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program (CMHRP).
