USGS CoastCam at Sand Key, Florida: Calibration Data

May 9, 2024

Two digital video cameras were installed at Sand Key, Florida (FL), facing south (camera 1) and north (camera 2) along the beach. Every hour during daylight hours, daily from 2018 to 2022, the cameras collected raw video and produced snapshots and time-averaged image products. This data release includes the necessary intrinsic orientation (IO) and extrinsic orientation (EO) calibration data to utilize the imagery to make quantitative measurements. The cameras are part of a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) research project to study the beach and nearshore environment. USGS researchers utilize the imagery collected from these cameras to remotely sense a range of information including shoreline position, sandbar migration, wave run-up on the beach, alongshore currents, and nearshore bathymetry. This camera is part of the USGS CoastCam network, supported by the Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program (CMHRP). To learn more about this specific camera visit….
