There are now a wide range of miniaturised image-based sensors (low-cost to high-cost) available for different UAV platforms as the basis to monitor different parts of the electro-magnetic spectrum from the UV to TIR (Thermal Infrared) and NDVI (Normalised Difference Vegetation Index).
This project will make use of a number of these sensors including:
RGB: GoPro 3/4, MapIR (RGB), Canon G9X RGB
NIR: MapIR (NIR), Canon S110 NIR
NDVI: GoPro, DJI X3 NDVI
TIR: FLIR Tau 2
MSS (Multi-Spectral): Parrot Sequoia
