Our new PhyGeo drone takes pictures in a near infrared range
Utilizing an infrared camera brings better results for analysing the effects of climate change, land use and other landscape ecology parameters that influence soil and vegetation. We use a Mapir Survey3 camera attached to the bottom of our new Phantom IV V2 drone. With the help of these recordings, it will be possible to determine the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) by calculating the reflection values of vegetation in the infrared range in relation to the red viewable range. The maps will be able to show changes in the growth of fields and nature reserves and therefore indicate soil differences and changes.
The new DJI drone has already been used in different projects that were conducted in North Rhine-Westfalia and Finland.
