Unmanned Aircraft System Multispectral, Pansharpened and LWIR Orthomosaics, QUT Samford Ecological Research Facility
This dataset contains Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) multispectral, pansharpened and long-wave infrared (LWIR) orthomosaics of the Samford Ecological Research Facility (SERF), Queensland University of Technology. SERF is located in the Samford Valley, west of Brisbane, Australia and is the usual place for flight testing and evaluation of new equipment. The QUT's Research Engineering Facility team operated DJI Matrice 300RTK (M300) with latest MicaSense Altum-PT (5-band multispectral sensor, LWIR, panchromatic channels and downlight sensor). The images were geo-referenced using the onboard GNSS in M300 and the D-RTK 2 base station and also georectified with 5 ground control points collected by Emlid Reach RS GNSS receivers. In the processing workflow in Agisoft Metashape, the multispectral orthomosaics were orthorectified and pan-sharpened. Dense point clouds were used to generate multispectral (GSD 3.4 cm/px), panchromatic and multispectral pansharpened (GSD 1.6 cm/pixel) and LWIR (GSD 21 cm/pixel) orthomosaics.
