Field Activity 2017-042-FA

Identifier 2017-042-FA
Purpose Drone Mapping to support coastal erosion research, Photogrammetry
Location South shore of Lake Ontario, United States, New York
Summary many aerial images were obtained from each of 3 sites (Braddock Bay, Sodus Bay, Chimney Bluffs), with accompanying surveyed CGPs and transect locations.
Info derived elevation/drone mapping, photogrametry
Comments Plan to map shoreline at 3 sites, with boat operations help from collaborators from Water. To assist FEMA in assessment of lake Ontario flooding, many aerial images were collected over 5 days at 3 sites: Braddock Bay NY 7/10-12 Sodus Bay & Lake Bluffs 7/12-15 Chimney Bluffs 7/15 GCPs transects were also surveyed at each location
