OT Dataspace
Dataset includes UAV structure-from-motion derived point cloud of steep headwater channels, cliffs, and hillslopes in the headwaters of Day Creek, San Gabriel Mountains, CA (survey conducted in August, 2018). Model spans ~500 x 500 m and was georeferenced to airborne lidar dataset using iterative-closest-point-alignment. Approximate point density of 225 pts/m2. Bare-earth airborne lidar dataset was used as reference cloud ( No vegetation filtering or clipping was performed on SfM derived point cloud. M3C2 cloud-to-cloud difference with default parameters yields 1-sigma cloud-to-cloud difference of 0.21 m and 2-sigma cloud-to-cloud difference of 0.78 m. Accuracy is likely not sufficient for change detection analysis but is sufficient for morphometric analysis (channel geometries, sediment grain size, spatial patterns of soil/colluvial sediment cover).
