Description Underwater images totaling 138,733 in number were collected at Eastern Dry Rocks coral reef, near Key West, Florida, in May 2021, using the SQUID5 Structure-from-Motion (SfM) system, a towed-surface vehicle with five downward-looking underwater cameras developed by the U.S. Geological Survey. The images are organized in zipped files grouped by survey line. The SQUID-5 records images as TIFF (.tif) format to maintain the highest resolution and bit depth. Each image includes EXIF metadata, containing GNSS date, time, latitude, longitude, and altitude of the GNSS antenna mounted on the towed surface vehicle, copyright, keywords, and other fields.
