Post-Hurricane Florence Digital Elevation Models of coastal North Carolina

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This data release presents structure-from-motion (SFM) products derived from aerial imagery surveys with precise Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) navigation data flown in a piloted fixed wing aircraft taken along the North Carolina coast in response to Hurricane Florence (available here USGS researchers use the elevation models and orthorectified imagery to assess future coastal vulnerability, nesting habitats for wildlife, and provide data for hurricane impact models. The products span the coast over both highly developed towns and natural areas, including federal lands. These products represent the coast after Hurricane Florence and cover the Cape Fear area, North Carolina to the Virginia border vicinity from October 6-8, 2018. This research is part of the Remote Sensing Coastal Change Project.
