USGS CoastCam at Tres Palmas, Rincón, Puerto Rico: Intrinsic and Extrinsic Calibration Data

Online link
Description A digital video camera was installed at Tres Palmas, Rincón, Puerto Rico (PR) and faced west to view the beach and water offshore. Every hour during daylight hours, daily from August 27, 2019 to March 10, 2020, the camera collected raw video and produced snapshots and time-averaged image products. This data release includes the necessary intrinsic orientation (IO) and extrinsic orientation (EO) calibration data to utilize imagery to make quantitative measurements. The camera is part of a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) research project to study the beach and nearshore environment. USGS researchers analyzed the imagery collected from this camera to remotely sense a range of information including shoreline position, sandbar migration, wave run-up on the beach, alongshore currents, and nearshore bathymetry. 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).
