Title:
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
Abstract:
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.

Why was the data set created?

To provide access to digitized photographs taken as part of the August 15, 2004, Post-Hurricane Charley coastal oblique aerial survey collected off the southwest coast of Florida from Marco Island to Fort DeSoto, Fla. and to provide access to attribute data that documents the time and location (to the best of our ability) of where each photograph was taken.

  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?
    Date: 15-Aug-2004 (process 1 of 17)
    Photographs were taken with two Nikon F3 cameras, each with a fixed 50-millimeter lens and UV filter. One camera shot the odd-numbered rolls, and the other camera shot the even-numbered rolls. Both cameras were equipped with a Nikon MF-14 data back. Rolls were numbered by hand in the air, and the end of a roll is noted in the audio track of the video. Film used was Kodak Ektachrome E100G. Commonly used shutter speeds were 1/250 second or 1/125 second. A constant shutter speed was attempted but may vary if there was a noticeable change in light levels. Initial shutter speed and any subsequent changes are noted on the audio track of the video. The f-stop was changed frequently to compensate for changes in light levels. The Nikon MF-14 data back added day of month, hour (UTC), and minute to the lower right-hand corner of the photograph. All photographs were taken from the second-to-last rear starboard window of the airplane.
    Video collection equipment consisted of a Sony DCR-VX1000 Handycam recording to MiniDV tapes. A Compix Titler unit provided video subtitles that include latitude, longitude, and time (hour:minute:second). Navigation was provided to the video by a Trimble Centurion GPS receiver, and time was provided by the titler unit's internal clock, which had been synchronized with UTC time. The video was shot out of the last starboard window of the airplane.
    Independent of all other equipment, a Rockwell Collins PLGR recorded navigation fixes, at a 30-second interval, acquired from a NMEA string during the flight. Person who carried out this activity:

    Slide names (year_date_roll number_slide number) and time (hour, minute) were manually entered into a Microsoft Excel 2004 spreadsheet. A Nikon MF-14 data back marked the time each photograph was acquired on the lower right corner of the image in day, hour, and minute format. It is assumed for the purposes of locating the images that the photographs were taken at a constant rate during any given minute of flight. To assign a time value in seconds to each photograph, the number of photographs taken during each minute was evenly distributed across those 60 seconds. For example: if 15 photographs were taken during minute 19:00:00, we assume that a picture was taken every 4 second. The photographs were then assigned the time values 19:00:00, 19:00:04, 19:00:08, and so on. As a result, it should be noted that the positions assigned to each photograph are an estimate of the aircraft position, not the location of the landmark photographed. This file was named slides.xls. The image names provide information about the photograph's year, date, roll number, and slide number. For example, slide 2004_0815_r030s01 was taken August 15, 2004, and is the first slide for roll 30. Person who carried out this activity:

  3. What similar or related data should the user be aware of?

How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data set?

  1. How well have the observations been checked?
    Best attempts were made to set the camera to UTC time on the GPS receivers at the beginning of each flight. The clock of the Compix Titler unit was also set to UTC at the same time. Human error during transcription of geographic position and time from the video is possible; however, no obvious errors were observed. Latitude, longitude and time were linearly interpolated from known navigation (collected every 30 seconds) and time stamps (collected every 1 minute). NOTE: Latitude and longitude positions in this report refer to the position of the aircraft, not the position of the landmarks photographed. Refer to the Process Steps below for more detail.
  2. How accurate are the geographic locations?
    The GPS receiver used to provide navigation to the video titler unit was a Trimble Centurion, which is accurate to within about 100 meters. Independent of all other equipment, a Rockwell Collins PLGR unit, also accurate to within about 100 meters, recorded navigation fixes. Best attempts were made to keep the same relative distance between the aircraft and the beach in order to keep a constant field of view.
  3. How accurate are the heights or depths?
  4. Where are the gaps in the data? What is missing?
    Individual slides were named by the year, date, roll number and slide number. For example JPEG image 2004_0815_r021s10.jpg refers to slide 10 of roll 21 taken on August 15, 2004. Some film roll numbers may be missing due to being skipped accidentally or to the film not threading correctly. No photographs were taken during the 5-minute segment corresponding to 2004_0815_183500 to 2004_0815_184000.
  5. How consistent are the relationships among the observations, including topology?
    Data presented here include the digitized photographs in JPEG format with EXIF headers imbedded and the location of the flight path of a post-Hurricane Charley coastal oblique aerial photographic survey of the southwest coast of Florida from Marco Island to Fort DeSoto, which was flown on August 15, 2004, aboard the N2KK Navajo Chieftain airplane. Crew members were D. Krohn, K. Morgan, R. Peterson, and P. Thompson of the USGS in St. Petersburg, Fla., and M. Frame of Bay Air Charters, Inc. Crew members took video and still photography along the coast during this survey. Two GPS units, a Trimble Centurion GPS and a Rockwell Collins PLGR, were used to record navigation of the plane.
