WinCAM NDVI can acquire images directly from most optical scanners or cameras that have a
TWAIN driver and can also analyse images from almost any digital camera stored in tiff or jpeg files.
For NDVI analysis a special camera which acquires images in the NIR and Visible parts of the
spectrum is required. Below you will find the specifications of the camera that can be purchased with WinCAM
NDVI as a complete system.
The applications of the NDVI camera are numerous. While it can be used with WinCAM to compute the
NDVI index of a scene, a part of it or per object, it can excel at measuring the vegetation cover over soil or
other background when color alone cannot be used. In some situations where the leaves or vegetation have colors
close to or identical to their background, they can usually be distinguished in the NIR part of the spectrum where
alive vegetation has a strong reflectance compared to other natural objects (soil, sand, rocks, water, ice, ...).
