NERO add-on for Grasshopper/Rhino
NERO is a collaborative project led by Noumena with the aim to develop systems and tools to translate different environmental conditions into data. As a part of this research, Noumena developed a first add-on NERO (V0.6.2beta) for Grasshopper.
NERO lets you extract data from a single image (JPEG format) and translate into Grasshopper and Rhino interface. You can visualize Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) values from the each pixel of the image. NDVI is directly related to the photosynthetic capacity and energy absorption of plants. It also can be used for other scopes.
