Paper Abstract

Monitoring the soil composition of agricultural land is important for maximizing crop-yields. Carinthian Tech Research, Schiebel GmbH and Quest Innovations B.V. have developed a multi-spectral imaging system that is able to simultaneously capture three visible and two near infrared channels. The system was mounted on a Schiebel CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAV for data acquisition. Results show that the system is able to classify different land types and calculate vegetation indices.
