Abstract
A lightweight, spectral-imaging sensor integrated into a small drone multicopter will produce high-resolution maps of plant health for ecosystem research and precision agriculture. Researchers can map ecological change at the forest level, while farmers can control fertilizer and water based on the requirements of individual plants.
