This is the first release of free and open source add-on of NERO | Networking Environmental Robotics.
NERO is a collaborative project lead by Noumena with the aim to develop systems and tools to translate different environmental conditions into data. As a part of this research, we present our first add-on “NERO” (V 0.6.2 beta) for Grasshopper, developed by Noumena.
NERO allows you to extract data from a single Image (JPEG format) and translate into Grasshopper and Rhinoceros interface. It allows you to visualize “Normalized Difference Vegetation Index” (NDVI) values from the each pixel of the image. NDVI is directly related to the photosynthetic capacity and hence energy absorption of plants. All the components are completely developed in C# language, which integrates GDAL/OGR libraries in order to support an extensive range of raster and vector formats.
