We pair intensive field data collection with remote sensing. Our remote sensing system makes use of satellite images (DigitalGlobe and RapidEye) and three types of cameras:
- A red-green-blue (RGB) camera in order to visualize the field location, boundaries, and percentage of green pixels (which correlate with percent ground cover).
- A multi-spectral camera, similar to the ones used on satellites, that can measure ground cover, leaf area index, and stress factors.
- A thermal camera that can measure canopy temperature, and thus water stress.
