Data sets

Surface morphological attributes derived from an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) M. V. Peppa, J. P. Mills, P. Moore, P. E. Miller, and J. E. Chambers

Short summary
Unmanned aerial vehicles can provide digital elevation models and orthomosaics of high spatio-temporal resolution to enable landslide monitoring. The study examines the additional value that morphological attribute of openness can provide to surface deformation combining with image-cross-correlation functions alongside DEM differencing. The paper demonstrates the automated quantification of a landslide's motion over time with implications for the wider interpretation of landslide kinematics.
