WinSCANOPY is a digital image analyser for canopy and solar radiations analysis which measures leaf area index, gap fraction, canopy openness, site factors and much more. It works from hemispherical images taken by a digital camera and a fisheye lens or from cover images with a narrower view angle. It is available as software alone or as a complete system offered in different versions ranging from low cost to high precision and full-featured. Some models are more compact and lightweight but still exhibit a very good image quality.

WinSCANOPY can be used in the laboratory, at remote locations on portable computers or in the field on ultra-portable computers which have a Windows operating system.

WinSCANOPY comes with color illustrated manuals and a fast and competent technical support. Its list of features makes it an excellent choice for the novice or the expert whether you are interested in canopy structure or radiation analysis. You can find in one single software program features that were found in different programs before.

A WinSCANOPY turn-key system is made of:

  1. Image acquisition hardware which consists of a camera with calibrated fisheye lens and optional accessories (self-leveling mount, north direction indicator (NorthFinder) and remote controller).
  2. Computer software programs which consist of WinSCANOPY (Basic, Reg & Pro) for hemispherical and cover image analysis and XLScanopy for data visualization.
