Rocky Intertidal RPAS Mapping - 2018 - 2020 - BC Central Coast - Canada

The rocky intertidal dataset consists of drone imagery and associated data, collected as part of nearshore surveying at the Hakai Institute.

The goals of this project are to: 1. Collect drone imagery associated with Nearshore survey sites, including affiliate research projects Relate RPAS-derived metrics to in situ field surveys 2. Derive metrics for nearshore habitat productivity and biodiversity using remotely sensed imagery

This project has two levels, the first being a one-time inventory, and the second being a seasonal component.

Level 1: one-time (i.e. non-seasonal) 3D models of all the sites for Nearshore Rocky intertidal, Pyropia, and Harley, Gehman, and Martone sites.

Level 2: At least once per year, collect fine-resolution orthomosaics to classify barnacles, mussels, phyllospadix, fucus, and other primary cover types.

We performed the Level 1 and Level 2 mapping at the following Hakai Rocky Intertidal sites as well as the level 1 and level 2 mapping at the three seasonal sites, we mapped sites requested by Alyssa Gehman / Chris Harley, Patrick Martone, and the seasonal Pyropia sites.
