Multispectral aerial imagery from unmanned aerial systems (UAS) flights: Potomac River in Point of Rocks, Maryland on October 24, 2019

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

These digital images were taken over an area of the Potomac River in Point of Rocks, Maryland using 3DR Solo unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) on October 24, 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 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. Some photographs contain black and white targets used as ground control points (GCPs), which were surveyed by a field crew with a high-precision (GNSS) Global Navigation Satellite System and/or containing internal post processing kinematic (PPK) GPS system. This data release includes the original images from MicaSense RedEdge multi-spectral camera of the Potomac River in Point of Rocks, Maryland.
