By calibrating normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) lighting, the Incident Light Sensor offers agronomists, crop consultants and growers a more accurate way to compare images of the same area, captured over time.
In a single flight, visual-band RGB, near-infrared (NIR) and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data is simultaneously captured, and then interpreted in the field to quickly detect problem areas and respond with action.
