Archive of Post-Hurricane Charley Coastal Oblique Aerial Photographs Collected during USGS Field Activity 04CCH01 from Marco Island to Fort DeSoto, Florida, August 15, 2004

Online link
Description On August 15, 2004, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducted an aerial survey off the southwest coast of Florida, starting in the south at Marco Island to Fort DeSoto in the north. These data along with Experimental Advanced Airborne Research Lidar (EAARL) coastal topographic and bathymetric data collected on August 16, 2004 (Bonisteel and others, 2009), will be used to detect coastal changes such as beach erosion and overwash caused by Hurricane Charley. These data will also be used to track future coastal change. This report serves as an archive of the Post-Hurricane Charley coastal oblique aerial survey photographs, flight path maps, Google Earth files, navigation files, digital Field Activity Collection System (FACS) logs, and Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) metadata. Attribute data including links to digital scans of the photographs are also provided. Latitude, longitude and/or time were gathered simultaneously from video (with latitude/longitude and time stamps), photographs (with time stamps) and a Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver (PLGR) navigation file (without time) that documented the location of the aircraft. Location data were converted to decimal degrees and merged to create a location and time file that provided estimated location information for where each photograph was taken (see process step below). Slides were digitally scanned as TIFF image files at 3,000 dots per inch and were converted to JPEG image files which are provided here. The header values filename, date/time, location, latitude, longitude, city, state, country, keywords, description (caption), source, contact info, credits, make, model, artist, copyright, image, history, user comments, and comments were added to the digital photograph's EXIF header. Refer to the Process Steps below for more detail on each of these steps. [More]
