Iso topic category: ['biota', 'geoscientificInformation']
Activity type: In Situ Land-based station
These photos were collected with a time-lapse RGB camera installed on a 2 meter high metal rack to monitor tundra vegetation. The photos have gone through a manual quality check and were automatically adjusted with an algorithm to correct for lateral and rotational movements. Black borders are placed around the photos to provide room for these adjustments. The mask included with this data was used to calculate Green Chromatic Channel (GCC), a vegetation index, to compare with NDVI data recorded in parallel.
