This dataset is obtained from a UAS survey on 13-14 June 2019 on the field site MFC2 located in Monteforte Cilento (SA, Italy), within the Harmonious COST action CA16219 - Harmonization of UAS techniques for agricultural and natural ecosystems monitoring-, activities framework. The general aim was soil moisture mapping using the thermal inertia method and vegetation-temperature triangle model method. A multispectral camera (tetracam) and a thermal one (FLIR tau2) were used. The NDVI was calculated from the red and near-infrared reflectance from the multispectral imagery, and the land surface temperature was generated from the thermal imagery
