There are lots of ways to process infrared imagery to analyze plant health. Here are a few:
(more coming soon)
Image Sequencer is different from other image processing systems in that it's non-destructive: instead of modifying the original image, it creates a new image at each step in a sequence. This is because it:
- produces a legible trail of operations, to "show your work" for evidential, educational, or reproducibility reasons
- makes the creation of new tools or "modules" simpler -- each must accept an input image, and produce an output image
- allows many images to be run through the same sequence of steps
works identically in the browser, on Node.js, and on the commandline

Photo monitoring plugin
@nedhorning has developed a plugin for ImageJ (aka Fiji, on the Mac) which can do a lot of powerful infrared compositing work, including batch conversion and image alignment.
For those who use the webcam and have a Python interpreter, there are some image processing codes available at Python Webcam Codes.
