SAVANT Field Site Orthophoto and High Resolution DEM

A fixed wing unmanned aerial system (UAS) was used to obtain a dense array of overlapping images of the SAVANT field site, from which a high-resolution, geographically registered digital elevation model (DEM) and orthophoto were derived photogrammetrically. The survey flight was conducted on April 24, 2019 at a time when there was no crop cover, thus derived elevations correspond to actual topography except in heavily wooded areas.
