Start Port/Location: Barnstable MA
End Port/Location: Barnstable MA
Start Date: 2018-04-04
End Date: 2018-04-06
Equipment Used: Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)
Information to be Derived: We'll be collecting high resolution images to be processed by photoscan to create DEM's, orthophotos, and point clouds
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Aerial imagery was collected by an unmanned aerial system (UAS) at Great Marsh, Barnstable, MA April 5, 2018. This collection was acquired to explore the UAS potential for mapping marsh ecological systems, vegetation diversity, and creating high resolution elevation maps. 2741 Ricoh GRII photos (14.9 GB) were collected along with 19,089 mica photos (32.9 GB), 19 GCPs.
