What do we do?
We build and fly U.A.V's with specially built cameras that allow us to capture high-quality images which we can process into orthomosaics by stitching many different images together. The cameras we use can capture light outside the visible RGB spectrum, allowing us to produce many different analysis images such as NDVI.
What is NDVI?
NDVI stands for a Normalised Difference Vegetation Index.
Growing vegetation absorbs visible light (solar radiation) as part of photosynthesis. Also at the same time plants reflect solar radiation in the near-infrared part of the spectrum. This difference in absorption of these different parts of the spectrum is quite unique to live vegetation and allows us to measure of the greenness or the healthiness of said vegetation.
NDVI is an index which measures this difference, providing a measure of vegetation density and condition. It is influenced by the fractional cover of the ground by vegetation, the vegetation density, and the vegetation greenness. It indicates the photosynthetic capacity of the land surface cover.
