Photogrammetric model of a portion of the Lee Adoyta Basin, Afar, Ethiopia

OT Dataspace
These data were collected in the Lee Adoyta basin of Ledi Geraru Research Project, Lower Awash Valley, Afar, Ethiopia. They were produced in support of paleontological research. The area comprises gently tilted 2.7 million year old rocks faulted against 3 million year old basalts. The area was described by DiMaggio, E. N., Campisano, C. J., Rowan, J., Dupont-Nivet, G., Deino, A. L., Bibi, F., Lewis, M. E., Souron, A., Garello, D., Werdelin, L., Reed, K., E., Arrowsmith, J R., Late Pliocene Fossiliferous Sedimentary Record and the Environmental Context of early Homo from Afar, Ethiopia, Science, VOL 347 ISSUE 6228, 10.1126/science.aaa1415, 2015. Collected with a DJI Mavic Air by Ramon Arrowsmith in coordination with Erin DiMaggio. Dominique Garello and Brian Villmoare assisted in ground control and planning.

Dataset Acknowledgement: Arrowsmith, J R., DiMaggio, E. N., Garello, D. I., Villmoare, B. and the Ledi Geraru Research Project. Supported in part by the US National Science Foundation and the Institute of Human Origins at Arizona State University. Collected in coordination with the National Museum of Ethiopia and the Afar Regional State.
Additional Information: The position information in the EXIF tags in the JPG images is INCORRECT! There was a firmware bug that put the same incorrect position in all of the images. But, the data were georeferenced using dGPS positions for markers in Agisoft Photoscan.
