Normal cameras record light visible to the human eye. This visible light has wavelengths of typically 400-600 nanometers.  Infra-red images are images recording the light seen by the camera at wavelengths longer than the of visible light.  We have equipment to record images from 600-1200nm and from 3000-4500nm. By using different wavelengths, different image applications are possible.


Near-Infrared Images

750-1200nm
- Black and white images.
- Minimizes atmospheric haze.
- High contrast between vegetation
         and barren land
- Best for high contrast panorama
- Good for unobscured views


Far-Infrared Images
- Traces thermal emission
- Can detect heat or ground fire
- Enhances pavement and roads
