1995 D-Z


DYCAM Agricultural Digital Camera (ADC)  - 1995.  The ADC was a portable digital camera specifically tailored for multi-band photography in the visible red and near-infrared.  The camera and software allowed calibration for the ambient conditions and applied the calibration value to all images made under the calibrated conditions.  The 24-bit color image from the camera was evaluated by the host software as one of the three supported vegetation indexes (VI). The processed VI image directly represented the result of the index equation used on a pixel-by-pixel basis.  The resulting 8-bit image could be palletized, saved and exported for use with other software. The purpose of the images was to evaluate the condition of crops, especially as to lack of or excessive ground moisture. Similar, but much more advanced systems are still used today.

It was introduced by Toshiba in 1995 when it was referred to as the Solid State Floppy Disk Card. It is manufactured by a number of companies, some samples of which are shown above.
