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.
- Black and white images.
- Minimizes atmospheric haze.
- High contrast between vegetation
and barren land
- Best for high contrast panorama
- Good for unobscured views
- Traces thermal emission
- Can detect heat or ground fire
- Enhances pavement and roads
