With such an extensive range of spectral resolution options in the SWIR range, and ultra-portable VNIR-only models, it can be hard to know which of ASD’s FieldSpec 4 spectrometers and spectroradiometers will best suit your specific application. That’s where we
Over the past two decades, precision ag history has been marked by rapid development and positive outcomes. Precision ag has become, well, much more precise. According to David Mulla from the University of Minnesota, USA, in his article on Precision
Precision Ag Case Study – Consider this example about a US project to inspect orange groves, looking for citrus blight disease.
What’s the difference between multispectral and hyperspectral? Imagine we could safely view the world through the eyes of different creatures, enabling us to view infrared radiation, ultraviolet light and reflected electromagnetic energy*. Well, we can, with the use of multispectral
Access sophisticated precision ag technology for accurate and innovative farm management Precision ag is a critical remote sensing application with the potential to impact any aspect of society. The use of UAVs in agriculture has been well-documented but the value
Coastal Exploration with Hyperspectral Imaging Valued PAS customer, Queensland University of Technology is using Headwall’s hyperspectral sensors to examine the beautiful Ningaloo Reef on Western Australia’s mid-north coast which has received a very positive conservation rating from World Heritage Outlook.
Eureka! Modern gold exploration takes advantage of technological advancements including Portable X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysers. XRF sampling techniques in gold exploration map the distribution of gold and in particular, the various pathfinder elements associated with gold (silver, copper, zinc, nickel,
PAS brings spectral imaging to the growing recycling and waste management industry. For the recycling industry, legacy ‘RGB’ technologies are unable to pick out the precise spectral characteristics that distinguish similar-looking types of plastic or paper products. Although hyperspectral imaging
