An efficient GPLv3-licensed Python package for extracting temperature data from FLIR IRT images.There is an existing Python package for extracting temperature values from raw IRT images, see nationaldronesau/FlirImageExtractor. However, it has some issues that I didn't like:Most importantly, it is forked from the UNLICENSED Nervengift/read_thermal.py, so until Nervengift/read_thermal.py#4 is answered, this package cannot be legally used. Secondly, it is quite inefficient, as it runs a new exiftool process for each image, and it converts the temperature for each pixel, instead of using numpy's vectorized math.See the README.md for more details, including how to install, use the software, and run tests.Many thanks to Glenn J. Tattersall, for their gtatters/Thermimage R package. This work uses an image and adapts part of gtatters/Thermimage under the GPLv3.0 License.This work was supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council [Doctoral Training Partnership Grant EP/R513325/1].

Abstract

An efficient GPLv3-licensed Python package for extracting temperature data from FLIR IRT images.There is an existing Python package for extracting temperature values from raw IRT images, see nationaldronesau/FlirImageExtractor. However, it has some issues that I didn't like:Most importantly, it is forked from the UNLICENSED Nervengift/read_thermal.py, so until Nervengift/read_thermal.py#4 is answered, this package cannot be legally used. Secondly, it is quite inefficient, as it runs a new exiftool process for each image, and it converts the temperature for each pixel, instead of using numpy's vectorized math.See the README.md for more details, including how to install, use the software, and run tests.Many thanks to Glenn J. Tattersall, for their gtatters/Thermimage R package. This work uses an image and adapts part of gtatters/Thermimage under the GPLv3.0 License.This work was supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council [Doctoral Training Partnership Grant EP/R513325/1].
