Description Digital elevation models (DEMs) were created from aerial imagery collected between September 08 and September 13, 2019, along the North Carolina coast between the Virginia-North Carolina border vicinity and Cape Lookout, North Carolina. These DEMs were created to document ground conditions post-Hurricane Dorian, which made landfall on the North Carolina coast on September 6, 2019. The DEMs help researchers estimate the land surface after Hurricane Dorian and were created to document inter-annual changes in shoreline position and coastal morphology in response to storm events using aerial imagery collections and a structure from motion (SFM) workflow. These data can be used with geographic information systems or other software to identify topographic and shallow-water bathymetric features. [More]
