Hexagon Geospatial Launches Vegetation Health Smart M.Apps
Hexagon Smart M.Apps Help Pinpoint Where Crops Need Attention07 June 2016
Hexagon Geospatial officially released seven different Vegetation Health Hexagon Smart M.Apps which make use of remote sensing algorithms to identify plant and crop health from a variety of different sensors. Focused on the burgeoning precision agriculture movement and the increasing ubiquity of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or drones, these Smart M.Apps make the power of remote sensing techniques accessible to everyone.
“Many of these indices have been available to remote sensing scientists and image analysts for years,” said Hexagon Geospatial President Mladen Stojic. “These Hexagon Smart M.Apps leverage the power contained within our desktop products, offering targeted components within lightweight apps.”
In addition, the analytical engines behind each of these Vegetation Health Smart M.Apps are available to Hexagon Geospatial Developer Network (HGDN) subscribers, providing them with templates to jumpstart the creation of their own Hexagon Smart M.Apps.
The seven Hexagon Smart M.Apps all focus on different aspects of crop, vegetation, and agriculture health measurement. Whether examining tall crops or identifying the location and extent of burned areas, these Smart M.Apps make complex remote sensing analysis quick, easy and accessible.

Vegetation Health Index - Measure the density and health of vegetation using the Vegetation Health Index Smart M.App.
Standard Crop Health Index - Measure the density and health of vegetation while minimizing the effects of soil presence in the analyzed area using the Standard Crop Health Index Smart M.App.
Advanced Crop Health Index - Measure the density and health of vegetation with the ability to self-adjust for soil presence, including differing soil types, in the analyzed area using the Advanced Crop Health Index Smart M.App.
Tall Crop Health Index - Minimize the effects of bright sunlight and soil presence when detecting and assessing the health of vegetation with a tall plant profile using Tall Crop Health Index Smart M.App.
Greenness Index - Measure the health or "greenness" of vegetation using the Greenness Index Smart M.App.
Chlorophyll Index - Measure the chlorophyll concentration of vegetation using the Chlorophyll Index Smart M.App.
Burn Ratio Index - Measure the severity of fire damage to vegetation and amount of destruction to an area using the Burn Ratio Index Smart M.App.
