PurePixel Products

When you look at airborne imagery of crops, what do you see? You see the crop canopy, but you also see soil and cover crops and shade and other things not associated with the target crop. Most vegetation imagery products, such as 'NDVI' or 'vegetative index', include all of these interferences as they are processed.

C3 can process the same raw imagery to remove the interfering factors and produce pure spectral signatures. This leads to more accurate and reproducible crop vegetative index products and is the breakthrough of C3's PurePixel vegetation maps.

Furthermore, in permanent crops the processing can be tuned to focus on only the actual crop pixels to produce something that is different from anything else in the market - C3's Targeted Vegetation Index. With the Targeted Vegetation Index maps every tree or part of a vine or tree hedge row has a unique calibrated vegetation index value that includes no noise, interference, or other intervening factors.

PurePixel vegetation maps lead to vastly improved interpretability and analytics with countless advantages for you…

  • Easily and accurately identify canopy characteristics and areas of weakness.
  • Use calibrated data for numeric interpretation to facilitate more precise management of your fields.
  • Analyze multiple maps from the same field within a season or over several years to assess changes in canopy size and quality.

C3's PurePixel outputs include both standard maps and accurately georeferenced files for field scouting and integration with other customer data.
