A multispectral sensor is able to record the natural radiation released or reflected by the object or the surrounding areas across the electromagnetic spectrum (visible, infrared and thermal bands).
CGR can employ the Hyspex VNIR1800 scanner which records the wavelengths of the natural radiation in 186 bands, from the visible range to the near, middle, far infrared and thermal bands. All these data are acquired in the same moment for each pixel and with the same field of view to ensure that all the spectral information are coming from the same point above the terrain.
For its spectral characteristics, the Hyspex VNIR1800 sensor can be used for different applicative fields where remote sensing techniques are significantly applied, such as Agriculture, Geology, Geomorphology, Botany, Asbestos, etc.
Characterization of vegetable coverage (vegetation classification and mapping, spectral libraries processing, sometimes related with field analysis).Monitoring of vegetation health status based on biophysics parameters and vegetation indexes.
Correlation analysis between vegetation typologies and geomorphologic aspects.
Analysis of parameters that can help to find fire high risks regions.
Identification of natural-environmental high interest areas (i.e. stable grassland, wetlands, etc.).
Identification of crops (density, phytosanitary status, moisture content, vegetation types and phenological stage).
Analysis of water constituents.
Cement-asbestos weathering status analysis.
