This field portable kit will allow you to make a simple, lightweight colorimeter that can measure the colour of any object against which it is placed. It works by emitting light with known properties and measuring what is reflected back into the sensor in three wavebands, corresponding to blue, green and red light. An infrared channel to the device so that a four-band reflectance spectrum can be measured and NDVI calculated.
