Feature request: Plant Health Statistic Export

strong text

Hi,
thanks to the Saijin_Naibs’ help, I am now posting my feature request to the right place.

For research purposes, we use fairly simple technology with the DJI Mavic 2 Pro without a multispectral camera. Nevertheless, the planthealth option with, for example, the Vari-Index, offers a good opportunity to make certain statements about growth differences in a field.

For the further evaluation of the planthealth orthophotos, we have built a small tool using R. This allows areas to be classified to a certain extent. Or two areas, preferably one field, can also be compared with one another. The relative number of Vari values ​​is shown in a “density plot”. In this way certain statements can be made about the homogeneity of a surface.

VARI-Statistic-1

At this point I have two questions:

Would it be possible to include an option to display such a density plot and to export statistical data of the value distribution in addition to the geoTIFF file?

What would be very practical for my purposes would be the option of exporting statistics showing the area proportions of the planthealth values. For example:

Mean value → 0.3 vari
Standard deviation → …

-0.5 (vari, ndvi …) → 0.3 hectares

-0.4 (vari, ndvi …) → 0.8 hectares



0.3 (vari, ndvi …) → 2.8 hectares

0.4 (vari, ndvi …) → …
Etc…

I know that these recalculations are all possible using GIS software, R, Python, etc., but I can imagine that many users would appreciate the easy way of exporting statistical plant health calculations

To be honest, I am not very familiar with coding, even if I would like to help in every possible way to advance the planthealth statistics export in ODM. If it would be helpful, I’ll be happy to share my little R code block for the planthealth density plot that I’m using

Thank you in advance and thank you very much for your great work with ODM

I also focus in agricultural drone process. I am still looking good way to get good information. Most of softwares are still in a very early stage in stitching images. But for farmers, they need the suggestion of the problems.

VARI in some point, it is very good.
