Summary

These point clouds were derived from low-altitude (approximately 92-m above ground surface) images collected from unmannned aerial system (UAS) flights over an edge-of-field, paired sampling site that is part of U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) monitoring. The objective of this UAS photogrammetry data collection was to provide information on the tile-drain network in each of the two fields with the goal of understanding already observed patterns in runoff amount and water quality from these sites. A 3DR Solo quadcopter served as the flight vehicle, controlled in pre-planned missions using Mission Planner. UAS and the multispectral camera (MicaSense RedEdge) both recorded geospatial information [...]

Purpose

The purpose of releasing these point clouds is to provide a basis for publication and research derived from the orthophoto mosaics generated from these images and point clouds. Imagery was collected in order to provide high-resolution imagery of field site, with the hopes of identifying locations of tile-drains. Flight activities were conducted according to Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Interior regulations.
