Caption: Photographs of the Lake Ontario shoreline, Chimney Bluffs State Park vicinity, New York, USA from survey 2017-042-FA .3. Finally, all the JPEG images were renamed with Namexif ( version 1.7: http://www.digicamsoft.com/softnamexif.html) to ensure unique filenames and compliance with USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program's best practices for image naming convention. Images were renamed with a survey ID prefix followed by a local USGS UID, which corresponds to a distinct UAS project; a camera ID that distinguishes among USGS cameras by make, model, and camera number; the image acquisition date and time in ISO8601 format(UTC; and a suffix with the original image name. For example, image name '2017042FA_U037RI01_20170714T162904Z_A2018661.JPG', 2017042FA is the internal survey ID, U037 is the internal UID, RI01 is the internal camera ID, 20170714 is the UTC date in format YYYYMMDD. A 'T' is used to separate UTC date from UTC time in format HHMMSS followed by a Z, and A2018661 is the original raw photo name appended to the end of the new filename.
