Great instrument!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Analyzing canopy closure in the context of invasive species.

"The CI-110 Plant Canopy Imager is great one-package solution for studying forest canopies. It is very easy to use and requires little set up. I plan to buy a second instrument."

Hardware is great, software is OK
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Plant canopy analysis

"Very easy to use, get lots of data quickly. Area for improvement: software development. The software is optimized for use on a tablet, but doesn't "play" nicely in a desktop windows environment. Can't figure out how to resize the window, and sometimes it sizes itself incorrectly so that I can't seem to see the buttons on the bottom of the screen well."

Was easy to use, but necessary to change the camera lens, because this reason was necessary it delayed our work. We continuing using the device.

  • Application Area:canopy leaf area

"When we use de device in a different computer, some data is different even when it is from the same file. We cannot find an explanation for it. The other uses are ok. "

A very nice and easy to use instrument.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Analyze the canopy cover on ecological studies of natural vegetation

"The CID CI-110 Plant Canopy Imager is one of the best canopy analyzers up to date. It is very easy to use, calibrate and to take data on the field. The most important advantage over other canopy analyzer is that CI-100 comes with 24 PAR sensors in its handle and are strong enough to take measurements of LAI with any light condition in the environment. I had a very nice experience using it in Neotropical Savannas and Forests of Brazil. "

The NEW Plant Canopy Imager CI-110 captures wide-angle canopy images while estimating Leaf Area Index (LAI) and measuring Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) levels. Images live-update on the built-in capacitive monitor, providing instant data for verification and analysis with integrated software in the field under any daylight conditions. User-selected zenith and azimuthal divisions allow investigation of any canopy sectors desired, and the instrument’s light-weight design makes it convenient for canopy imaging in any location! Now with updated GPS accuracy with access to four different satellite constellations, and the ability to interchange lens filters over the camera for more specific measurements.

FEATURES

  • Single measurement for comprehensive data collection and instantaneous, in-field calculation with integrated software
  • No above-canopy reference measurement required
  • Calculated LAI of low lying plant canopies up to forest canopy
  • Adjustable camera lens focus for varying canopy heights, down to 30 cm
  • 150° viewing angle with live-updating high-resolution fish-eye digital image
  • On-site evaluation of solar beam transmission coefficients or gap fractions for LAI analysis
  • Calculation of diffuse radiation transmission coefficients (the sky view factor), mean foliage inclination angles, and plant canopy extinction coefficients
  • Fully integrated ceptometer with 24 photodiodes to measure Sunflecks in the range of Photosynthetically Active Radiation
  • User-selected number of zenith and azimuthal divisions allows investigation of any canopy sectors desired
  • Digital masking of unwanted elements in image
  • Digital color filters allow user to further distinguish between sky and plant
  • Internal compass and GPS enable repeated measurements in the same location over the growing season
