I want to have a discussion here related to various methods of collecting NIR imagery in support of generating Vegetation Index data such as NDVI, specifically with regards to using OTS digital cameras or modified digital cameras.
In general there are two approaches:
NDVI requires a visible band (usually Red or in the case of single camera NDVI, Blue) and an NIR band.
I've been working on a single camera NDVI mapping solution using canon P&S. Testing, testing, testing, and posting results at www.flightriot.com
Please offer any guidance, suggestions, experience, or questions related to using NIR imagery in UAV aerial mapping.
I look forward to the discussion.
Great! These recent comments on a thread may be useful. No doubt there are more with lots of searching.
Soo.. Any opinion about the raspberry pi camera module noir, a good choice for ndvi photo?
IT seems they've made some progress with it:
