Normalised Difference Vegetation Index or NDVI is a method of determining crop health by measuring how well the crop reflects light. Images can be capture via satellite, aircrafts or UAVs. NDVI is a particularly useful tool for farmers and agronomists, because it helps them to easily view track their crop or pasture performance.

Metes and bounds is a system or method of describing land, real estate or administrative boundaries. The system has been used in Britain for many centuries, and is still used in many land jurisdictions based on British common law.

Typically the system uses physical features of the local geography, along with directions and distances, to define and describe the boundaries of a parcel of land, an administrative boundary or some other human-defined boundary. The boundaries are described in a running prose style, working around the feature in sequence, from a point of beginning, returning to the same point.


Spatial Vision was engaged by Goulburn Broken CMA to develop a Citizen Science App.
