|Figure 1. Map showing the post-Hurricane Sandy oblique photography survey flight path (USGS field activity 12CCH04), from Cape Lookout, North Carolina, to Montauk, New York.|
The photographs provided here are Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) images. The photograph locations are an estimate of the position of the aircraft and do not indicate the location of the feature in the images (see the Navigation Data page). These photos document the configuration of the barrier islands and other coastal features at the time of the survey. Exiftool was used to add the following to the header of each photo: time of collection, Global Positioning System (GPS) latitude, GPS longitude, keywords, credit, artist (photographer), caption, copyright, and contact information. Photographs can be opened directly with any JPEG-compatible image viewer by clicking on a thumbnail on the contact sheet.
Table 1 provides detailed information about the GPS location, image name, date, and time each of the 9,481 photographs were taken along with links to each photograph. The photographs are organized in segments, also referred to as contact sheets, and represent approximately 5 minutes of flight time. (Also see the Photos and Maps page)
In addition to the photographs, a Google Earth Keyhole Markup Language (KML) file is provided and can be used to view the images by clicking on the marker and then clicking on either the thumbnail or the link above the thumbnail. The KML files were created using the photographic navigation files.
This report is divided into seven sections: Home, Abbreviations, Contents, Photos and Maps, Navigation Data, Logs, and Metadata. Links at the top and bottom of each page provide access to these sections. (If you are viewing this report on DVD, use a Web browser to open the file index.html.)
Links to the full-sized images can be found through the Photos and Maps page and through Table 1. KML files, Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) files, images used to produce the Web pages, and a readme file are also included in this report. Global Positioning System (GPS) data collected during the flight is also available in Navigation Data. The Logs pages contain information on the flight and the equipment used.
The Contents page contains a diagram of the location of all files and folders mentioned in the text and provides links to these files and folders.
