Hello, I have a small Home Inspection business, my UAV has been invaluable for roof inspections and property photography, I want to add thermal imaging to my business, as you know it's very expensive, I have been looking at the Parrot Bebop Pro Thermal with the Flir One Pro camera, it has a 160X120 resolution which is ok for what I'm doing. There are a couple of big advantages, one, you can take both thermal and HD images in one flight, the other is the Flir One Pro can be detached and used with a smartphone for interior imaging. The idea of taking a thermal pic of the entire roof area has some value for energy loss evaluation etc.
The Parrot package is only 1500us vs other quotes anywhere from 5k to 20k
When i first saw the word "thermography" i thought of printing. Why? i ran a printing press for many years and thermography is when you print raised lettering on business cards etc. with powder and heat.
Anyway i learned another meaning to the word thermography today
ya i read that also but i believe the actual "act" is thermography.LOL Good to know but I think the proper verbiage for the printing industry is "Thermographic Prinitng".
Thermographic printing refers to two types of printing, both of which rely on heat to create the letters or images on a sheet of paper. The simplest type is where the paper has been coated with a material that changes colour on heating.

That article does not mention the anything about what i am talking about. This is about the closest i can find at this time:
Thermography or thermographic printing is a printing process that causes text or graphics to be slightly raised from the substrate. The resulting visual effect is interesting, making this a technique that is commonly used on wedding invitations, letterheads, business cards, greetings cards, gift wrap, diplomas and packaging.
