At sensor radiance from Micasense RedEdge
« on: April 22, 2024, 01:28:29 PM »
I am interested in generating orthomosaics of at-sensor-radiance data from Micasense RedEdge. However it's not entirely clear at which stage of the processing the formula given by Micasense ( https://support.micasense.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000351194-Radiometric-Calibration-Model-for-MicaSense-Sensors ) is applied.
If I just process images without reflectance calibration (no reflectance panel or DLS) will the output be in radiance (or pseudo radiance) or digital numbers?

Many thanks!

Just updating here as this is very important to know for our workflow, i.e. whether this correction needs to be applied to the images themselves before processing in Metashape or not.
The same question applies to other camera systems like Parrot Sequoia.
