Dataset contains raw and orthomosaiced UAS data of Bradford Corn field (H1G) and Soybean field (H7B) collected in June 2, 2016 through September 23, 2016. 1. Data type: Thermal and multi-spectral raw and orthormosaiced data/imagery
Sensors used for data collection (1)Thermal Camera 8640 P-Series | USB Thermal Imaging Infrared Camera, perfect for UAS applications, provides thermal radiance and temperature within +/- 1°C accuracy. (http://www.infraredcamerasinc.com/shop/products/8640-p-series/) (2)Parrot Sequoia Multispectral camera. Parrot Sequoia is a small multi-spectral sensor. It captures 16MB visible (RGB) images and non-visible spectral (red edge and NIR) data that are ideal for monitoring crop health and vigor.

UAS system used for data collection A multirotor UAS system built in Dr. Wulamu's Lab at Saint Louis University. The UAS frame is DJI S1000+, integrated with multiple systems.
Data processing (1) Thermal raw data was first geotagged using flight log, and then converted to actual ground temperature in Celsius using a number of procedures. Raw imagers were mosaicked using Pix4Dmapper. (2) Parrot Sequoia multispectral data, geotagged using onboard GPS on the fly, were converted to reflectance. Raw imagers were mosaicked using Pix4Dmapper.
