This page collects research on using #raspberry-pi based cameras (aka #pi-camera) to take [Infragram](/wiki/infragram) multispectral photos, for plant health analysis. It is supported in part by the [AREN project at NASA](/aren).
## Design goals
Low cost, low complexity, easy to build and open source!
Also see the [Image Sequencer](/image-sequencer) project which is designed to run on a Raspberry Pi for on-board image processing.
To get a kit with this already set up on an SD card and/or Raspberry Pi camera, see:
* [Infragram Pi Camera Kit](https://store.publiclab.org/products/infragram-pi-camera)
* [Pre-flashed SD cards for Raspberry Pi cameras](https://store.publiclab.org/products/pi-builder-cards)
## Quick start
If yours is already assembled, just plug it in using a Micro USB cable (or battery pack) and it'll create a WiFi network called `00-PiCamera` -- password `publiclab` -- which you can log into from your phone or laptop. You'll quickly see streaming video, be able to take photos, timelapses, or videos, do motion triggered capture, and more.
Questions can be either frequently asked questions, or "next step" challenges we're looking to solve.
Activities show how to use this project, step by step.
