The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as part of the National Assessment of Coastal Change Hazards conducts baseline and storm-response photography missions to document and understand the changes in the vulnerability of the Nation's coasts to extreme storms. On June 09, 2017, the USGS conducted an oblique aerial photographic survey of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility (USACE FRF), aboard a Cessna 182 aircraft at an altitude of approximately 1000 feet (ft). This mission was conducted as part of the USACE FRF Duck Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Open Field Experiment, June 5 - 21, 2017. The survey pattern was selected to provide the greatest amount of coverage of the FRF facility, with the aircraft flying east/west transects first, followed by north/south transect, providing full coverage of the FRF grounds.
