USGS Madeira Beach, Florida CoastCam Imagery and Calibration Data

August 25, 2023

A digital video camera was installed at Madeira Beach, Florida (FL) and faced west along the beach. Every hour during daylight hours, daily from 2017 to 2022, the camera 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 imagery to make quantitative measurements. The images included in this data release were collected from January 21, 2017, to December 31, 2017. The camera is part of a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) research project to study the beach and nearshore environment. USGS researchers analyzed the imagery collected from this camera 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 Total Water Level/Coastal Change Project under the Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program (CMHRP).
