New Correlation analysis module

Compare PlantEye data with manual or third-party data. For instance, compare your height measurements with our measurements in a one-to-one correlation. Or use the explorer to see which of our parameters correlate best with your visual scores.

HortControl - Correlation module

Color segmentation

Set thresholds in a color histogram for all spectral parameters. This way you can filter everything you don’t want to be measured from the 3D file. Filter artifacts like pots, soil or cabling or get very precise measurements of pods and flowers by filtering the rest of the plant.

3D grid for easier experiment set up

A 3D grid is added to the 3D view to gives a sense of dimensions when splitting the blocks. This makes it easier to compare the 3D view with the real situation.

Other updates

  • Option to edit network settings
  • Position information for each block within Reprocessing tool.
  • Diskguard can be set for NFS mounts.
