Barrier Island Evolution

Data - Oblique Photos

The USGS collects oblique aerial photography along the Nation's sandy coastlines to document coastal change. Images are collected at an elevation of 500 feet, and approximately 1000 feet offshore using a digital camera with at least a 6 MP resolution. Each image is geo-located using the GPS position of the aircraft.
