svc_hero_ger1500The GER 1500 is the proven choice of scientists around the world when acquiring VNIR spectral data for remote sensing research. The GER 1500 provides fast and accurate data acquisition on land, in or above water. This self-contained instrument integrates the spectroradiometer with an internal CPU and battery so that measurements can be made using only one hand. The unitary design eliminates the need for computers and cables to be connected during data acquisition. This makes acquiring data much easier and speeds up collection.

When operating the GER 1500 using the optional PDA outfitted with wireless Bluetooth, scientists can take data from an instrument elevated far above the tree canopy while standing firmly on the ground. In this mode, the data can be quickly viewed on the PDA before moving to the next target location. The GPS coordinates are automatically appended to each data file for precise location during data analysis.
