Color maps show the environment as seen in visible light.
They help determine the types of vegetation.
Color Infrared maps show the relative health of vegetation and canopy structure.
Shades of red and pink show healthy vegetation, while light to medium grey and brown shows native vegetation such as Chaparral.
Dark grey and dark brown indicate dead or dying vegetation.
NDVI maps show the distribution of green vegetation cover.
Dark green areas are generally large, dense vegetation.
Non-vegetative areas are white to blue, this includes paved areas and hardscape.
NGVe maps help identify areas of reduced chlorophyll which is diagnostic of dead and dying plants.
Bright green areas are indicative of healthy vegetation.
NGVe maps are created with a proprietary algorithm developed by FireWatch.
3D models can be created from any of the multispectral imaging data.
DIGITAL ELEVATION MODELS
Digital Elevation Models (DEM) show the relative terrain height. DEMs assist with understanding the watersheds.
Change detection maps are created from two or more maps of the same location created at different times.
Change detection maps show the additions and subtractions as assigned colors to give a visual representation of changes over time.
Thematic maps emphasize a particular theme or special topic such as vegetation cover, condition, hydrology, and surface disturbances.
