Common Misconceptions Regarding UAV-Collected NDVI Imagery
If you are considering spending several thousand dollars on a proclaimed “Infrared” or “NDVI” camera for your drone, this is a good article to read and consider before doing so. As you’ll read, not all NDVI images are create equal and the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index was actually created some 40-years-ago to work with images captured by satellites, not within our atmosphere by less precise cameras on drones.
Also note that Near Infrared, the most predominate light wave emitted by healthy plant tissue, images are actually black and white. The NDVI images you’re accustomed to seeing online are actually created using software after the fact.
The first image shows the raw photo taken by their camera with a blue notch filter, the center shown after it has been altered using Agribotix software using a NIR-VIS index, notice the tractor is black and the vegetation is green. The image on the right was altered using a standard NDVI, you’ll notice the tractor lights up in green as if it were a plant, a common issue found when using NDVI.
