Title: SPRUCE Experimental Plot Top View Aerial Images beginning June 2019

Abstract

This data set provides a record of the aerial images of the SPRUCE experimental plots obtained periodically using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with attached camera from 2019-05-05- to 2022-08-25. New images of the plots will be added periodically. The initial RGB images may be used for studies of greenness and snow coverage and compared with ground-based measurements and chamber-based tree and shrub Phenocam images (e.g. Schädel et al., 2022). Also included are NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) images showing calculated difference between visible near-infrared (NIR) light reflectance from vegetation, as well as infrared (IR) and multispectral images. Files are presented in JPEG (*.jpg) or PDF (*.pdf) format inside of 28 compressed (*.zip) files. Images were collected for the 10 plots with enclosures, the 7 unchambered plots, and the environmental monitoring instrument cluster area. Images are slightly off-plot center at 12 to 15 meters above ground level or approximately 2 meters above the top of an experimental chamber.
