Chlorophyll Map: The red edge spectral band is the star here, working in conjunction with the other bands to provide a more accurate measure of not just plant vigor but plant health.
NDVI Layer: This commonly known index compares the reflectance of the red band with that of the near-infrared band. However, this index alone provides limited information.
Digital Surface Model:A DSM is an astonishingly advantageous tool in any agronomist’s arsenal, primarily because of its use in evaluating surface properties and water flow.
RGB Image:RedEdge-M features global shutters for distortion-free images, including narrowband red, green, and blue bands for RGB color images that when processed are aligned to all visible and non-visible bands and vegetation indices.
The DJI Inspire 2 is the first DJI drone to have the ability to feature not one, but two cameras. The unit has its main camera for capturing footage slung underneath on a three-axis gimbal. Just like the first model, the Inspire 2’s legs lift up, so they won’t block the camera’s view. The camera can freely rotate 360 degrees to capture action in any direction. In addition, there is now a simple, two-axis camera on the front that allows the pilot to always see where the drone is headed. The system is designed for dual operators: one pilot, one director framing the action, each receiving their own live video feed.
If you’re flying solo, the Inspire 2 can help you achieve some tricky shots with the use of computer vision and autonomous navigation. Like other new DJI products, the Inspire 2 now has sensors that allow it to see and avoid obstacles. Vision sensors are placed on the front and bottom of the unit, and infrared sensors sit on top. The unit also features the computer vision system and automatic subject tracking. This means you can lock onto a subject and the camera will rotate to keep them in frame. This happens while the aircraft flies freely in another direction.
Featuring the new CineCore 2.0 system, it can capture 5.2K video at a whopping 4.2Gbps bitrate. To handle all that data, the Inspire 2 has added an onboard SSD. For photographers there is a DNG RAW mode that captures 30-megapixel still images. And it can stream video in broadcast-quality formats for local news crews who want live aerial video from the scene of an unfolding event.
Also powerful enough for industrial customers doing things like infrastructure inspection, site surveys, and security.
