Sherwood, C.R., Brosnahan, S.M., Ackerman, S.D., Borden, J., Montgomery, E.T., Pendleton, E.A., and Sturdivant, E.J., 2018, Aerial imagery and photogrammetric products from unmanned aerial systems (UAS) flights over the Lake Ontario shoreline at Chimney Bluffs, New York, July 14, 2017: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Low-altitude (80-100 meters above ground level) digital images were obtained from a camera mounted on a 3DR Solo quadcopter, a small unmanned aerial system (UAS), in three locations along the Lake Ontario shoreline in New York during July 2017. These data were collected to document and monitor effects of high lake levels, including shoreline erosion, inundation, and property damage in the vicinity of Chimney Bluffs State Park, New York. This data release includes images tagged with locations determined from the UAS GPS; tables with updated estimates of camera positions and attitudes based on the photogrammetric reconstruction; tables listing locations of the base stations, ground control points, and transect points; geolocated, RGB-colored [...]

This camera location data provides updated image location information as determined by the Agisoft Photoscan software as a result of processing that included automated image alignment, lens calibration and using independent ground control data. The cameras (or images) noted in this table were imported into the Photoscan software and, if successfully aligned, they were used in the creation of the final photogrammetric products (including point clouds, digital elevation models and orthomosaics). In addition to XYZ location, attitude data estimates (yaw, pitch and roll), and error values from the original photo GPS data are also included.
