Key Features

01. Simultaneous capture of five discrete spectral bands and thermal images.

02. High image resolution on multispectral images enabling high resolution applications.

03. Radiometrically calibrated spectral and thermal imagers for precise, repeatable measurements.

04. Aligned thermal and multispectral imagery means advanced analytics are simpler to create.

Synchronized thermal
and multispectral imagery

The MicaSense Altum captures six bands - red, green, blue, red edge, near-infrared and thermal. The capture of these bands happens at the same moment, making the data easier to align and use for analytics. Also, because there are six bands, data from Altum can be used to create anything from NDVI to digital surface models to thermal heat maps

Altum’s high resolution imagers mean you don’t need an extra RGB camera. Less gear and streamlined data capture ensure that you can spend more time analyzing your data and less time flying.

Drone Data that Delivers

Our goal is to give you the tools you need to get the best-quality yield from the healthiest crops you can grow. It’s why we designed our products for agriculture from the ground up, why we work to make them better every day, and why our engineers answer customers’ questions when needed—so you know that we’ve put together a solution that can help you keep your profits as healthy as your crops.

One Sensor to do the job of three

Capture data on plant health, phenotype, water stress and more using one sensor, in one pass. Use Altum imagery to do more than just confirm what you already know—use multi-layered data so you can confront multifaceted issues.

Imagery Comparison
Altum opens the door to advanced analytics for researchers and enterprise-level growers and empowers service providers to take on more complicated projects. Synchronized and calibrated outputs provide three times the information in just one flight, and dramatically reduces post-processing time.

Raw GeoTIFF Data (1 Capture)

Single Capture (24.4 MB)

Samples containing the unprocessed output files, as they are captured by the camera, one 16-bit RAW TIFF file per band (based on 12-bit data) (six images: blue, green, red, red-edge, near-infrared, and LWIR thermal).

This sample data was collected from 120 m AGL.


Complete Flight

Flight (4.7 GB)

A full flight over an orchard at 120 m (~ 400 ft) with images captured with 75% overlap. It includes captures of a calibrated reflectance panel.



Orthomosaic (520 MB)

This specific geotiff was captured in fall 2018 in Eastern Washington, and images a number of different crops.
Included with the geotiff for optional use is a QGIS project file and a set of GDAL Virtual Raster files that can display various renders and indices of the data using the free QGIS program. There is more information about this in the README file included in the download.
