Description:
Abstract:
The data in this publication map the beach and nearshore environment at Marconi Beach in Wellfleet, MA and provide regional context for the 2021 CoastCam installation that looks out at the coast shared by beachgoers, shorebirds, seals, and sharks. These data were collected as part of field activity 2021-022-FA and a collaboration with the National Park Service at Cape Cod National Seashore to monitor the region that falls within the field of view of CoastCam CACO-02, which are two video cameras aimed at the beach. Starting in February and ending in March 2021, U.S Geological Survey and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) scientists conducted field surveys to collect position and orientation information for the CoastCam cameras and map the field of view. Two new reference marks were established in the Marconi Beach parking area to establish ground control for future surveys. Elevation data were collected using a real time kinematic – satellite navigation system (RTK-GNSS) receiver attached to a pole and walked on the beach. Point data of the beach face were collected along transects. Grain-size analysis was performed on sediment samples collected with a spade along multiple profiles from the bluff base to the intertidal zone. Aerial images of the beach for use in Structure-from-Motion were taken with a camera (Ricoh GRII) and a post-processed kinematic (PPK) system attached to a helium powered balloon-kite (Helikite) and high-precision GPS targets (AeroPoints) were used as ground control points. Bathymetry was collected in the nearshore using a single-beam echosounder mounted on a surf capable self-righting electric autonomous survey vehicle. Agisoft Metashape (v. 1.7.2) was used to create a digital elevation model with the collected imagery and this was merged with the bathymetry in MATLAB (v. 2020) to create a continuous topobathy product.
Purpose:
May be used as a high-resolution elevation dataset of Marconi Beach for use by the public, researchers, and others to observe ground conditions and change over time.
Supplemental_Information:
This digital elevation model, as constructed using structure-from-motion from the images in the 2021022FA_Marconi_f1.zip file, represents 0.4426 square kilometers of Marconi Beach in view of the CoastCam cameras on March 17, 2021. The GeoTIFF is not cloud optimized. For more information about the WHCMSC Field Activity, see https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2021-022-FA.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The positional information used on the Helikite and ground control point datasets and metadata are available in the imagery and navigational components of the larger work citation.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
All data fall into expected ranges except for points near and offshore of the waterline, where the data returned can be noisy and may result in erroneous measurements. This is a digital surface model (DSM) and includes returns from vegetation.
Completeness_Report:
The structure-from-motion process that builds the DSM uses all the available imagery and location information at the start; however, not all images may align in the software to produce the final product. The elevation surface was clipped to roughly match the lateral extents of the bathymetry data. This topographic surface does not have interpolated elevation data to fill holes. Users are advised to read the rest of the metadata record carefully for additional details.

Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Digital Surface Model was created in Agisoft Metashape v. 1.7.1 using the following general steps (see Over and others, 2021 for a more detailed explanation of methodology):
1. Project created and imagery (located in larger work citation 2021022FA_Marconi_f1.zip) and position (located in larger work citation 2021022FA_Marconi_f1_photolocations.csv) data were brought in using the NAD83(2011) datum. 2. Photos were aligned at high accuracy (the pixels are not subsampled for increased processing speed) with a keypoint limit of 40,000 and unlimited tie points. Alignment uses the positions and matching pixels between images to create point clouds and put the imagery into a real-world relative spatial context. Photos that failed to align/find tie points contained breaking waves and water but are kept in the project to reconstruct the orthomosaic because they are still spatially orientated even if they do not contribute to the elevation model. Metashape software refined and optimized the camera positions and lens model in a least squares sense to minimize reprojection error or the distance between the measured points and the software created points. 3. Nine ground control points (GCPs) (2021022FA_Marconi_nav_AeroPoints.csv located in the larger work citation were added to the project in NAD83(2011) and manually identified in the images as markers. 4. A dense point cloud was generated using high quality (images are not subsampled) and a low frequency filtering algorithm. Accuracies for the GCPs were set 0.01 m and accuracies for the camera positions were set to 5 cm, resulting in a total camera position error of 0.05m and a GCP error of 0.016 m. The dense point cloud was then edited to remove noise by filtering by point confidence before generating a digital elevation model (the software calls all surfaces digital elevation models, but technically it is a digital surface model because it includes vegetation and canopy returns, a DEM or terrain model would be only bare earth returns). 5. The digital surface model is exported from the software at a resolution of 25 cm and in NAD83(2011)/UTM Zone 19N (ESPG:6348) and GEOID18 NAVD88 in meters. 6. Product was clipped in ArcDesktop (v. 10.7) to the western most corners of the bathymetry GeoTIFF in the larger work citation to simplify the process of joining the two products together.
