Description This portion of the data release presents the locations of the temporary ground control points (GCPs) used for the structure-from-motion (SfM) processing of the imagery collected during the Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) survey on of the Liberty Island Conservation Bank Wildlands restoration site in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta on 2018-10-23. The GCPs were used to establish ground control for the survey and consisted of 24 small (80 x 80 centimeter) square tarps with black-and-white cross patterns placed on the ground surface throughout the mapping area during the survey. The GCP positions were measured using RTK GPS, with corrections from a GPS base station located approximately 3 kilometers south of the study area. The GCP positions are presented in a comma-delimited text file. [More]
