These digital images were taken at select locations over the Potomac River using 3DR Solo unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in October 2019. These images were collected for the purpose of evaluating UAS assessment of river habitat data such as water depth, substrate type, and water clarity. Each UAS was equipped with a Ricoh GRII digital camera for natural color photos, used to produce digital elevation models and ortho images, a MicaSense RedEdge multi-spectral camera that captures five specific bands of the visible spectrum (blue, green, red, rededge, and near-infrared), which can be used to classify vegetation, or FLIR Vue Pro R 640 13mm radiometric thermal camera that provides temperature data embedded in every...

This dataset contains data collected during science flights using the drone-based QCam, which is a Doppler (velocity) radar designed to measure surface velocity and compute river discharge when channel bathymetry is known. Five science flights were conducted on four rivers including the Arkansas and South Platte Rivers in Colorado and the Salcha and Tanana Rivers in Alaska. Data are presented in a comma separated values (CSV) file.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is actively investigating the use of innovative remote-sensing techniques to estimate surface velocity and discharge of rivers in ungaged basins and river reaches that lack the infrastructure to install conventional streamgaging equipment. By coupling discharge algorithms and sensors capable of measuring surface velocity, streamgage networks can be established in regions where data collection was previously impractical or impossible. One of the remote-sensing techniques uses a Doppler (velocity) radar (QCam) mounted and integrated on a small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS or drone). QCam measures the along-track surface velocity by spot dwelling in a river cross section at a vertical...

The U.S. Geological Survey collected multispectral and visible light imagery via a quadcopter, small unoccupied aircraft system (sUAS) deployed near Ashville Bridge Creek in Virginia Beach, VA. Approximately 0.25 sq mi surrounding U.S.Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge along Ashville Bridge Creek approximately 0.5 mi south of Lotus Garden Park on July 17 and 18, 2018. Photos were collected at a height of 400ft above ground level (AGL) with approximately 70% frontlap between photos and approximately 30% sidelap between survey lines. Multispectral images were collected in a tif format using a Micasense RedEdge M with a Ground Sample Distance of 8.2 cm/pixel, visible light images were...

The U.S. Geological Survey collected low-altitude airborne visual imagery via a multirotor, small unoccupied aircraft system (sUAS) along with Real Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS survey data at Childs along the Verde River in Arizona in December 2017. Visual imagery was collected in jpg format and Structure from Motion techniques were applied to the visual imagery to derive a time-specific high-resolution orthomosaic for the study site.

This dataset includes vertical velocity profiles and river discharge at the cross section of interest where velocity measurements were taken on the Arkansas and South Platte Rivers in Colorado and the Salcha and Tanana Rivers in Alaska. Each profile contains measurements from at least six depths across the cross section in order to have a full two-dimensional cross-section velocity profile across the river. Each profile contains measurements at various depths at the y-axis, which is the vertical in the cross-sectional profile where the maximum velocity (umax) occurs.These measurements were taken using a Flowtracker2 instrument (SonTek, 2020) when wading was possible; if wading was not possible, measurements were...

This point cloud was derived from low-altitude aerial images collected from an unmanned aerial system (UAS) flown in the Cape Cod National Seashore on 1 March, 2016. The objective of the project was to evaluate the quality and cost of mapping from UAS images. The point cloud contains 434,096,824 unclassifed and unedited geolocated points. The points have horizontal coordinates in NAD83(2011) UTM Zone 19 North meters, vertical coordinates in NAVD88 meters, and colors in the red-green-blue (RGB) schema. The points were generated in photogrammetric software (Agisoft Photoscan Professional v. 1.2.6) from 1122 digital images taken approximately 120 m above the ground with a Canon Powershot SX280 12-mexapixel digital...

Small unoccupied aircraft systems (UAS) are now often used for collecting aerial visible image data and creating 3D digital surface models (DSM) that incorporate terrain and dense vegetation. Lightweight thermal sensors provide another sensor option for generation of sub meter resolution aerial thermal infrared orthophotos that can be used to infer hydrogeological processes. UAS-based sensors allow for the rapid and safe survey of groundwater discharge areas, often present in inaccessible, boggy, and/or dangerous terrain. Visible light and thermal infrared image data were collected March 2018 and March 2019, respectively, at Tidmarsh Farms, a former commercial cranberry bog located in coastal Massachusetts, USA...
