Start Port/Location: Woods Hole MA
End Port/Location: Woods Hole MA
Start Date: 2019-03-28
End Date: 2019-03-29
Equipment Used: Aeropoint targets, 3DR Solo mRo, Ricoh GR II, MicaSense RedEdge, Digital camera, Spectra Precision SP80
Information to be Derived: Geotagged photos will be collected used for creating photogrammetric products (DEM's, orthophotos, point clouds)
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: This project took place at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in Newbury Ma, on March 28th 2019. We collected UAS images with a 3DR solo from The MicaSense RedEdge camera, and the Ricoh GRII. Aeropoints targets and traditional vinyl targets were placed as ground control points and were georeferenced using spectra precision SP-80 RTK rovers. The validation for the benchmarks values used a point at the Parker River Boat launch for localization. The knob was used to deploy targets.

Notes: A MicaSense RedEdge multispectral camera was mounted on a 3DR Solo Quadcopter UAS.
A Ricoh GR II camera was mounted on a 3DR Solo Quadcopter UAS.
