Geo-referenced NDVI of Urban Area produced with a single NIR-G-B Canon PowerShot 300 ELPH HS from maxmax.com.
The band math calculations were completed with OTB Orfeo open source remote sensing package.. it is nice because it preserves the geotiff information / metadata. This is a quick follow up to the last blog post with NDVI generation using two camera system.
I am busy working on a winning formula for my UAV setup. Once it is done I am going in the same direction using dronemapper. What they have done is so impressive.
Hopefully this is not a silly question but can NDVI be done at night? We have much brighter lights that are very small and light,.. like XM-L Cree bulbs that output 1000+ lumens per bulb.. is it at all possible to do a NDVI flight using a UAV with the camera and lights.. or do you really need sunlight to do it.. NDVI uses visible + IR relectivity so in theory it does not need to be the sun.
NDVI can be calculated from the reflectance of artificial light. That is how greenseeker works...
@JP ... thanks for sharing your efforts. After reading your stuff,
1) did you compare (science) the quality of this one cam setup with your two cam setup, i am curious if vibrations are an issue?
2) did you also own or a test the 230HS camThanx .cj
Can you please point me in the wright direction? I am very interested in aerial mapping and eventually 3d terrain mapping I would like to read about some information on how to begin. Is there a beginner guide or tutorial on the basic set up from beginning to end? I have gathered some information from other people’s questions from the internet but the info is all mixed up. Can I get the info all in one place? Please advise
@Alex, If you are interested in going to a workshop that covers this material, check out this event.
