Beach Use Patterns in Dune Restoration Sites on the North Coast of Puerto Rico

This dataset contains (pre-project, post-project and monitoring) aerial imagery of each of the ecological restoration sites captured at an altitude of 30 m with an RTK GPS enabled UAV. Tracks in the sand are color coded in order to be able to calculate percent coverage of the beach use patterns on each image. Human tracks = yellow; Dog tracks = green, Invasive green iguana tracks = blue; Bike tracks = brown yellow, Horse tracks = brown and Bird tracks = Violet. This analysis is very important for monitoring and for planning our restoration prescriptions at every site.
