The video above attempts to provide a "Behind the Scenes" view of how we are capturing the NDVI composite images while working with a local farmer and a section of his wheat crop.
The on board video, captured images, along with ground video and mission planner execution was synchronized to provide more of a "real time" understanding of a mission flight.
For best viewing, please launch in full screen HD.
The gigabyte composites are being published to a web based panorama for analysis.
Click on the image above to launch the panorama and view the composites.
At launch, a 360 ground based panorama of the wheat field section is displayed.
Click on the "normal" and "NDVI" composites in the top left blue area.
Click on the bottom bar for other functions (i.e. maps, auto scroll, help)
Use your mouse to pan around and wheel to zoom in and out.
Complete details and results of our efforts can be seen on our "surveys" website page at
I want to thank "DIY DRONES" and its members who contribute so much in helping all of us to debug, develop, refine and launch this new technology and suite of products. As a small payback for all that we have received, I hope this post can be of some use to those interested in supporting their farmers with aerial surveys.
