This is the most common type of imagery captured. RGB images are generally used in surveying, mapping and GIS missions where a high-definition surface model or 3D point cloud are required. This type of image is produced using the digital camera sensor and is a part of the color spectrum that people are most used to viewing in standard photographs.
Near Infrared (NIR)
Near-infrared (NIR) imagery offers a better assessment of plant health than traditional photos by visualizing color bands outside of what the human eye can see. It is regularly used in precision agriculture in order to calculate plant vegetation health.
Since NIR has the highest level of reflectance of the light bands, NIR-capable cameras make it possible to identify the reflectance of light from vegetation, which strongly correlates with the level of chlorophyll present in the plant. Plants with more chlorophyll reflect a higher amount of NIR light than unhealthy plants, this makes it possible to identify plants of poor health.
Thermal imagery is used in many industries, ranging from agriculture, construction, inspection, and surveying.
This type of imagery detects heat signatures from the environment to identify the range of temperature present in an image.
This can help identify “hot spots” in images in order to inspect/monitor, crops, nursery, and greenhouses, for irrigation scheduling, plant disease detection, estimating crop yield and even identifying wet spots from irrigation in crop fields.
TRAINING & SUPPORT
We provide training to collect precise data and use the equipment correctly.
Understanding the client’s objectives and customizing the delivery of data to suit their specific requirements is critical to the successful completion of any project.
The Agri-Sense team was formed to meet the specific requirements of the agricultural industry. Our teams of experienced experts can offer training in all aspects of the process to ensure correct and meaningful data is captured and analyzed correctly.
We can also provide backup support for the equipment should it be needed.
