Measuring smoke diffusion from consecutive images

Question asked by laurablackburn on Jan 12, 2016

I have a number of jpegs (similar to that below) that show smoke moving out of a insect funnel trap over time.  I am interested in measuring the horizontal and vertical spread of the smoke.  I assume that I can do this using image analysis, but I have not done this type of analysis before.  I am looking for any ideas or tools that can be used to "track" the smoke movement.  I also noticed that I can symbolize these images in ArcMap using a vector field which is very interesting, but I do not understand how this visualization can be used.

 

Does anyone use the vector field symbology and if so, what for?

 

Any ideas or tips are greatly appreciated.
