Interpretive Summary: Airborne videographic, digital video, and true digital multispectral imaging systems have become popular remote sensing tools for evaluating natural resources because of the near-real time availability of the imagery, high spatial resolution of these systems, and immediate compatibility of the image data with computer systems. Using commercially available products, ARS scientists at Weslaco, Texas, have assembled a six-camera multispectral digital video imaging system for natural resource assessment. This system is unique because it obtains imagery in the blue, green, red, red edge, near-infrared, and mid-infrared regions of the light spectrum, allowing the system to be employed for numerous natural resource applications. Researchers, natural resource managers, and government agencies can use this system as a tool for evaluating and monitoring natural resources.
