The objective of the work reported is the development of red-edge methodology in order to characterize agricultural vegetation types and the determination of relationships between different vegetation (high biomass, low biomass) and thermal images. Therefore, the aim was to calculate red-edge position (REP) values and compare them to traditional vegetation indices (NDVI) and thermal images. Images were taken by a DAIS 7915 airborne imaging spectrometer that was equipped with an additional thermal imaging system. An exponential relationship was found between the on-curve-evaluation based (REP) and the broad band vegetation indices (NDVI). A linear relationship was determined between surface temperature differences ( ΔTs ) of the vegetation and NDVI values. A logarithmic relationship was found between surface temperature differences ( ΔTs ) of the vegetation of the canopy and red-edge position (REP). NDVI and REP are suitable vegetation indices when there are several bands available in the spectral range of 600-800 nm. REP was found to be a suitable method for analyzing and characterizing vegetated surfaces.
