2014-2015 Untrawlable Habitat Strategic Initiative (UHSI) Video and Still Imagery Data Collection

UHSI Optical Data

browse graphicSample Image from August 12, 2014
The data collection deals with the optical data (i.e., video and still imagery) collected by natural light stereo cameras mounted on a MOdular Underwater Sampling System (MOUSS). The data collection consists of natively collected still images (5 frames per second) as well as the full length video and video segments that were created from original still images. Video annotations exist for the video segments; annotations are currently housed within a spreadsheet. The purpose was to execute a testbed study designed to evaluate the performance of transitional advanced technologies. All data are spatially located in the Florida Middle Grounds in the Gulf of Mexico.

Lineage information for: dataset
Lineage Statement Data were collected by a joint efforts between the Southeast, Northwest, and Alaska Fisheries Science Center. Data were then sent to NCEI. NCEI packaged the data and provided subject matter expertise to process the data into user-friendly, accessible video data segments.
Processor
  • NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information
Processing Steps
  • Data were delivered to NCEI CCOG Subject Matter Experts via hard drives and subsequently uploaded to NCEI servers. Data were then repackaged and processed by NCEI personnel for long-term archive.
Source Datasets
  • 2014-2015 Untrawlable Habitat Strategic Initiative (UHSI) Imagery Data
    • Description of Source: UHSI optical data were natively collected as still images; these still images, collected at 5 frames per second, were used to create all video data within the 2014-2015 UHSI collection.
