Class Code:

MIS 102
 

Date:

 

To Be Announced 

 

 
 

Location:

 

The Tetracam Office
21601 Devonshire Street #310, Chatsworth, CA 91311

 

 
 

Description:

 

 

 

 

 

  Throughout the world multi-spectral imaging systems monitor the visible and near-infrared radiation reflected from crops in order to spot crop threats and increase crop yield.  Through lectures and hands-on laboratory exercises, this course is designed to deliver an in-depth understanding of multi-spectral imaging technology with an emphasis on its practical use in agricultural management.

The class describes current technology, tools, and methods used for collecting, organizing, and analyzing multi-spectral images.  Participants learn how to use multi-spectral hardware and software to capture visible and near-infrared images of vegetation, extract NDVI and other vegetation indices from these, and how to interpret images to recognize signs of stressed vegetationThey also learn how to integrate these systems with manned and unmanned aircraft and other peripheral devices.  Finally, they learn how to stitch multiple images together into precise geo-referenced image mosaics.

 

 

 


Outside of the
classroom, participants use their cameras to capture multi-spectral images of native vegetation in various stages of health.  Multi-spectral images of various crop canopies are also supplied.  In the classroom, participants extract NDVI, SAVI, and other vegetation indices using the free software pre-loaded on their laptops.  

Class participants are provided with a loaner camera and free software to use for field and lab exercises.   Those individuals who bring their own Tetracam multi-spectral camera and a laptop pre-loaded with the required multi-spectral image processing software to class receive a $500 discount on class tuition.

Individuals who complete this class receive a Certificate in the Principles of Multi-spectral Imaging Technology from Tetracam.

Who Should Take This Course:  Principles of Multi-spectral Imaging Technology is recommended for growers, crop consultants, researchers, educators, and others tasked with employing multi-spectral imaging systems to remotely sense and analyze the condition and chemistry of vegetation.  The class is also helpful for UAS providers, system integrators, professional aerial photographers, and other suppliers of remote sensing equipment and services considering that the class delivers a practical understanding of Tetracam systems and the market which they serve.
