Joe Adams (NUSO) mounts a Ricoh GRII camera to a UAS during the snow water equivalent (SWE) project in Winter Park Colorado

Detailed Description

Joe Adams (NUSO) mounts a Ricoh GRII camera to a UAS that will be flying transects to collect natural color imagery during the snow water equivalent (SWE) project in Winter Park Colorado. After collecting 100s of overlapping natural color images they will be processed with structure from motion (SfM) software to generate 3D models of snow pack that provides very accurate elevation of the top of the snow for comparison to radar and lidar data. The generated natural color orthomosaic is also used to colorize the lidar point cloud.
