Black Spot Leaf Area Calculator

 
 
Black Spot Leaf Area Calculator : Attachments (1). 1 post by 1 author.

We would like to bring to your attention the launch of Black Spot, a free software for automated estimation of leaf area from scanned images of leaves. Black Spot operates by classifying image pixels based on their colour characteristics. Our lab at NCBS, which works on plant functional traits, has extensively used Black Spot for estimating traits such as specific leaf area. We believe the software will also be useful to researchers in other branches of ecology (e.g. plant-animal interactions) and agricultural sciences.

Please take a look at the attached announcement for more details on Black Spot. If you use the software and have any feedback, we’d love to hear from you. And if you know of anyone else who might be interested in Black Spot, we request you to forward the announcement to them.
