PERTH-based Stratus Imaging has been confirmed as a feature exhibitor at the Southern Dirt Techspo in Katanning on September 12-14.
The precision imaging specialists provide a full range of services, including soil mapping, remote sensing and aerial applications to the agricultural industry.
In line with Techspo’s aim to showcase innovation and technology at Katanning, the demonstration will include unmanned aerial vehicles in the field.
Stratus Imaging uses a calibrated multispectral camera, with advanced algorithms providing farmers, growers and agronomists with actionable and geo-referenced information which can assist with timely in-season crop management decisions.
Typical information provided includes but is not limited to:
ENDVI (Enhanced Normalised Difference Vegetation Index) – a close equivalent and enhanced version of NDVI, designed for low altitude monitoring systems.
OSAVI (Optimised Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index) developed as a enhancement of the NDVI to correct for the influence of soil brightness.
GLI (Green Leaf Index) – adjusts for the greenness and yellowness of the cro, and was designed for low altitude monitoring systems.
Field Uniformity Tool that makes it possible to quantify plot-level statistics on drawing data from the ENDVI, OSAVI and GLI algorithms.
Canopy Cover mapping tool based on a robust vegetation index which provides an accurate delineation of the vegetated area.
The information provided allows for targeted ground truthing and in consultation can be created into prescription maps for VRT.
Stratus Imaging will be in a big field site on Great Southern Highway for the Expo Techspo.
p Southern Dirt Techspo aims to be Australia’s premier technology and innovation event for the agricultural community and associated industries.
It will include technology developers, farmers, advisers, expert researchers and officials to showcase advanced agriculture technology, information sharing and collaboration with an optional study tour for those who want to experience more.
