Energy flux and evapotranspiration modeling via the widely used two-source energy balance (TSEB) model at a subfield scale for vineyards based on the high-resolution images gained by the small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) is a critical tool for vine-growers and researchers to better understand the water and energy exchange between the land surface and air. The footprint area of the eddy-covariance (EC) tower is a crucial factor that can provide an efficient and effective channel for verification of modeling results (e.g., evapotranspiration and energy components). This project provides an efficient way to search parameters from the available dataset provided by the Grape Remote sensing Atmospheric Profiling and Evapotranspiration eXperiment (GRAPEX) team according to the AggieAir (, a type of sUAS) flight time, which can help in footprint area calculation. The list of footprint areas generated are intended to efficiently support research and promote a better understanding of the water and energy exchange. This project is also a part of our pending paper. Other researchers can also consider using this project if the available data are similar.
