Digital Camera Analysis - Using a digital camera with a light box designed to create a lighting situation and distance from the grass is unchanging, pictures are analyzed by a computer to remove subjectivity of raters. Current ratings are taken on a 1-9 scale which are subject to the raters likes and dislikes. Digital camera analysis has been used to monitor the drought effects in the rainout shelter and turf trials with much greater objectivity.
