1   Washington Street site, Banning strand, southern San Andreas Fault, CA
 
Description
Washington Street site data was generated using Structure from Motion (SfM; not a laser scanning method). The site is located ~20 km due east of Palm Springs and covers a short section of the southern Banning strand of the San Andreas Fault that cuts through an alluvial fan and has not ruptured historically. The site serves as a test site for using SfM in paleoseismic studies.

2   Galway Lake Road, Emerson Fault, CA
 
Description
Galway Lake Road site data was generated using Structure from Motion (SfM; not a laser scanning method). The site, located ~45 km north of Yucca Valley, covers a segment of the Emerson Fault ruptured by the 1992 Mw 7.3 Landers earthquake, and tests the feasibility of SfM as part of the immediate scientific response following an earthquake.
