Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science: Aerial mapping and infrared imaging

Join the Public Lab for a demo on how kites and tethered balloons can lift a payload 500’ into the air. We will show you how to setup your point and shoot camera to take continuous pictures, how to modify your camera to capture near-IR imagery and demo, a browser-based software for stitching images into maps.
