Abstract:
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducts baseline and storm-response photography missions to document and understand the changes in vulnerability of the Nation's coasts to extreme storms. On September 2-3, 2012, the USGS conducted an oblique aerial photographic survey (during Field Activity Number [FAN] 12CCH03) along the Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana barrier islands aboard a Cessna 172 aircraft at an altitude of 500 feet (ft) and approximately 1,000 ft offshore (Figure 2, https://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/0988/html/ds988_fig2.html). This mission was flown to collect data for assessing incremental changes since the last survey, which was flown in September 2008 (central Louisiana barrier islands, http://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=08ACH06) and June 2011 (Dauphin Island, Alabama to Breton Island, Louisiana, http://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=11CCH02) and can be used for assessing future coastal change. 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, https://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/0988/html/ds988_nav.html). These photographs 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. All image times are recorded in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Table 1 (https://pubs.usgs.gov/ds/0988/html/ds988_table.html) provides detailed information about the assigned location, name, date, and time the photograph was taken along with links to the photograph. 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. Note: A KML number was assigned to each photograph to aid navigation of the Google Earth file. These numbers correspond to the site labels in Google Earth.
Purpose:
To provide access to digital photographs taken as part of the September 2-3, 2012, post-Hurricane Isaac oblique aerial survey collected along the Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana barrier islands, and to provide access to attribute data that documents the time and location of where each photograph was taken.
Supplemental_Information:
For a summary of field activity 12CCH03 please see http://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=12CCH03. Bounding coordinates and start and end times included in the Data Series were derived from the overall flight path included in the raw GPS data. Ancillary files included in this publication are ds988_12CCH03_0902_gpsmap60c.txt, ds988_12CCH03.csv, and ds988_12cch03.kml, in addition to the digitized oblique aerial image files.

Data presented here include the digitally collected photographs in JPEG format with the Exchangeable Image File (EXIF) headers embedded with the individual photograph's location along the flight path of a post-Hurricane Isaac coastal oblique aerial photographic survey of the coast, taken along the Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana barrier islands. This mission was flown on September 2-3, 2012, aboard a Cessna 172 aircraft, tail number N737FK. Crew members, contracted by the USGS in St. Petersburg, Fla., include Karen Westphal (independant photography contractor, work done under contrat to USGS) and pilots Ned Downie and Brandon Campbell, of Air Reldan, Inc. Still photography was collected along the coast during this survey. GPS Data Collection --- Instrument: Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx. Data Collection Interval: 2 Seconds. Data File Format: text, *.gdb, *gpx, *mps, *.dxf. Number of files created: 5 (Note: Only the text file is included in this report). Computer: none. Software: none. The GPS unit was used to record navigation fixes of the aircraft, not the position of the features imaged.

Image Aquisition: Images were taken with a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and written to internal camera cards. Image size is approximately 18 megapixels. Images in JPG format were saved using the filename format yyyy_mmdd_hhmmssd.jpg (where the "d" signifies digital acquisition using the Canon EOS Rebel). The names provide information about the photograph's year, month, day, hour, minute, and second. For example, image 2012_0902_133636d.jpg was taken September 2, 2012, at 13:36:36 UTC. Best effort was made to set the Canon EOS Rebel's internal clock to within 1 second of UTC at the beginning of the flight.
