Event description

Description

This year, the Coastal Imaging Research Network Bootcamp and the Argus Workshop will be held back-to-back at the US Geological Survey in St. Petersburg, Florida. There is a registration cost for the instructional Bootcamp part of the week (June 4-5); however, there is no cost to attend/present at the 2018 Argus Workshop (June 6-8). See descriptions of both events below. Registration is required to attend either of the events.

CIRN Bootcamp: June 4-5, 2018

The CIRN Bootcamp (June 4-5) will provide both the background and hands on experience in working with coastal imaging for new users. Attendees will work with image data of the surf-zone and learn how to process and analyze the data using the UAV and cBathy toolboxes.

The bootcamp will cover the development of coastal imaging, cameras and photogrammetry, lens distortion, UAV/single camera collection methods, sampling from video streams, solution methods for image geometry, common image products, and nearshore data analysis with imagery.

Technical Requirements for Boot camp: Attendees are expected to be competent with MATLAB and need to bring their own laptops loaded with MATLAB and the MATLAB Statistics and Machine Learning toolbox. The boot camp will utilize the CIRN UAV Toolbox and the cBathy Toolbox. Both are available here (https://coastal-imaging-research-network.github.io) and should be downloaded and tested before the workshop.

Argus Workshop: June 6-8, 2018

The Argus Workshop (June 6-8) will focus on showcasing innovative research on Argus/coastal imaging systems and coastal imaging tools utilizing remotely sensed observations. Those wishing to present, please submit your abstract by clicking the link below.
