Public Lab Research note

NDVI output

Three new color tables made by Ned Horning to present NDVI values as color images.

Ned Horning has been working on his ImageJ plugin and since I finished my poster and my last research note, he made improvements to the way it standardizes images so they have a similar appearance. Below is an updated composite of the New Hampshire cover crop trials made with new options in the plugin. I aligned 20 new NDVI images in Photoshop, but the images output by the plugin were not adjusted or blended. I will bring a copy of this to Cocodrie to add to the unposter session.

The poster below can be viewed full screen here .


Nice work! Thanks for sharing this. The color tables you generated produce very clear distinctions in the images. I would suggest one caution: The distinctions will be all but lost on those with red-green color-blindness. The value ranges are good, and a color other than red for the negative range will avoid the problem with that rather sizable population. Just a thought.

Andy, That's a really good suggestion. You can see what this research note might look like to those who are red-green colorblind here (the gigapan embed does not show up). I will talk to Ned Horning about coming up with a color table that will be more useful to those with protanopia. Thanks, Chris
