Coastal Habitat Mapping drone surveys of the Falkland Islands 2018 and 2019

A compilation of aerial imagery datasets, collected using a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone at elevations ranging from 30m Above Ground Level (AGL) to 100m AGL. They were collected by Neil Golding, project manager of the Darwin Plus 065 Coastal Habitat Mapping project, throughout 2018 and 2019 from various locations around the Falkland Islands.

Lineage Aerial mapping missions were planned using the MapPilot for IOS application and uploaded to the drone. Missions were planned with an 80% image overlap along and across track, and typically used the terrain awareness function. Following completion of the mission, the resultant imagery (in the form of a sequence of jpg images) were processed in AgiSoft Metashape Pro in order to create an georeferenced orthomosaic. Where appropriate, other outputs such as a digital elevation model were also developed.
