1.1.1. Product Description
NDVI estimates general plant health conditions from the relative reflectance of 2 spectral bands as shown in the section above. However, an increased number of spectral bands can provide improved sensitivity to changing health conditions if properly implemented. To achieve this Slantrange incorporates 4 spectral bands into a proprietary formula to increase sensitivity while avoiding data redundancy. Vegetation Stress is essentially a “quad-band” NDVI.
As with NDVI, crop vegetation pixels are segmented from background soils and other noise to deliver the most accurate results.
