The U.S. Geological Survey collected low-altitude airborne thermal infrared data and visual imagery via a multirotor, small unoccupied aircraft system deployed from the northern bank of Oh-be-joyful Creek and adjacent to the Peeler fault, approximately 6 kilometers northwest of the town of Crested Butte, in Gunnison National Forest, Colorado, on August 17, 2017. Thermal infrared still images were collected in jpg and radiometric tiff formats, and non-radiometric thermal infrared video was collected. The radiometric thermal infrared still images were compiled automatically into a larger stitched image (orthomosaic). Visual imagery was collected in jpg format, and the images were compiled automatically into a larger stitched image (orthomosaic). Structure from Motion techniques were applied to the visual imagery to derive a time-specific digital elevation model (DEM).
