To provide information relative to monitoring coastal structures using limited ground surveys, properly acquired low-altitude aerial photographs, and photogrammetric analysis. Under the Monitoring Completed Coastal Projects MCCP program, a technique has recently been developed and used to obtain precise vertical and horizontal positions of all visible armor units on coastal structures. The procedure utilizes limited ground-based surveys, low-level aerial photography, and photogrammetric analysis. After initial, or base level conditions are established, subsequent surveys may be used to precisely quantify armor unit movement.
