This morning, Avery and I accompanied Dr. Burney and Mike FERRIS to the Grove Farms Museum. There we went through historic maps of Koloa, aiming for maps including topographic and landscape information. Once found, we digitized them by taking pictures with a super fancy camera, which had 48 MP resolution. (I will upload some pictures of the process). This whole process took about three hours. As a reward, Dr. Burney took us all to the Kauai Museum in town to visit the gift shop.
We met up with the other half of our group at the NTBG education center where we focused on data processing. I’ve been running Photoscan almost 17 hours for an orthophoto and point cloud of the Grove Farm Quarry. I tried to process the LiDAR data but I didn’t have enough time to finish it. Creating a DEM from the LiDAR data will be my next task once the quarry point cloud is done.
