  • This dataset is a compendium of GPS Data collected by Randy Carlson and collaborators on the Virginia Coast Reserve (primarily), Plum Island and North Inlet. A master data table was extracted by Charles L. Carlson during 2013 that includes all the individual point locations recovered from individual surveys. In addition to the data table, the data is also shared as a .zip file containing a static web page with links to particular projects and the underlying data. To use the data, unzip it and use your web browser to open the index.html file. Web page contents include: American Oyster Catchers on the Virginia Coast Reserve - 2003 Lynette Winters - Salicornia - MSL elevation project Dynamic Evolution of Barrier Island Morphology and Ecology from 1996-2002 Documented Using High -Resolution GPS-GIS Topographic Mapping Surveys, Virginia Coast Reserve (for GSA, Denver, CO Oct 27-30, 2002 Broadwater Tower Overwash Fan Photos - Feburary 15, 2002 Hog Island Bay DGPS Drifter Study 2001 Ray Dueser/Nancy Moncrief Small Mammal GPS/GIS A Topographical History of North Myrtle Island, 1974 to 2001 Ray Dueser/Nancy Moncrief - Highest Elevations on VCR Barrier Islands Myrtle Island Planimetric area, Surface area & Volumetric Calculations 1996-2001 Myrtle, Ship Shoal GIS/GPS UTM Shape Files and Grids Myrtle, Ship Shoal, ESNWR, Shirley, Steelman's Landing Text Files Complete List of All Small Mammal Trap locations 1995 - 2001 Ship Shoal Island Small Mammal Traps 1997 - 2000 LTER Cross-Site GPS Surveys Hobcaw Barony / Baruch Institue SET/GPS Survey, South Carolina, December 2000 PIE/LTER - Plum Island Sound GPS Network, July 1998 Montandon Marsh at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, Pennsylvania 1997 Bathymetric Survey Procedures, Schematic Diagrams and Instructions The following instructions and procedures are used with reference to the Trimble 4000 SE Global Positioning System receiver, the Trimble NavBeacon XL, the Innerspace Digital Fathometer (Model 448) and the Innerspace DataLog with Guidance Software.
