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

Abstract

This data set provides a record of the aerial photographs of the SPRUCE experimental plots obtained using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with attached camera beginning in June of 2019. New photographs of the plots will be added periodically. The UAV is a YUNEEC Typhoon Hexacopter with GCO3+ 4K Camera. Photographs 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. The initial RGB images may be used for studies of greenness and snow coverage and comparison with ground-based measurements and chamber-based tree and shrub Phenocam images (Schädel et al., 2019). Future thermal infrared or hyperspectral images may also be added to this data set. The SPRUCE experiment is being conducted in a Picea mariana [black spruce] – Sphagnum spp. bog forest in northern Minnesota, 40 km north of Grand Rapids, in the USDA Forest Service Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF).
