Equipment Used: Aeropoint targets, 3DR Solo mRo, Spectra Precision SP80, Ricoh GR II, MicaSense RedEdge
Information to be Derived: We'll be collecting aerial photographs and ground control points to create photoscan projects.
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: This field event took place on 11/14/2017 at Plum Island in Newbury, MA. 3DR solos UASs were flown with the Ricoh GRII collecting RGB true color jpegs. Ground control points were collected using spectra precision SP-80 RTK collectors.
Staff: Jonathan Borden, Amy Farris, Daniel Nowacki, Elizabeth Pendleton, Emily Sturdivant
Notes: A Ricoh GR II camera was mounted on a 3DR Solo Quadcopter UAS.
A MicaSense RedEdge multispectral camera was mounted on a 3DR Solo Quadcopter UAS.
