My lab has just published a paper detecting differences in soybean canopy temperature using an IR camera from an aerial platforms of a kite or tethered balloon (depending upon wind conditions). If interested, here is a link to the PDF. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jac.12259/epdf
My appreciation goes out to many of you on the KAP forum for your advice and help. There is a short note in the acknowledgment sections recognizing the form:
"... We also acknowledge the expertise of members of the Kite Aerial Photography User’s Forum (http://arch.ced.berkeley.edu/kap/discuss/
) who were a wonderful source of inspiration and assistance."
