Dataset Open Access
This dataset contains a time series of very high-resolution images of the distal part of Zackenberg River, northeast Greenland. Images were captured using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) immediately before (5th August 2017), during (6th August 2017), and after (8th August 2017) the glacier lake outburst flood.
Data cover a 2.1-km-long distal section of Zackenberg river, from the delta to the bridge. Images were captured with high overlap; therefore, they can be processed in photogrammetric software. They are georeferenced using UAV onboard GNSS system and can be coregistered using a model-to-model approach or external ground control points. Images are organized into three zipped files, according to the capture date.
Potential applications of the presented dataset include:
This dataset contains unprocessed images. Photogrammetric products derived from the images (orthomosaics, digital elevation models, hillshade models) and GIS products, which are the results of the geomorphological mapping, can be accessed at: https://doi.org /10.5281/zenodo.4498296 (Tomczyk and Ewertowski, 2021)
