Infrared cameras combine the high speed imaging power of a digital camera with the ability to acquire data during the day or the night, making them a promising new tool for ground-based atmospheric research. Previous work shows that images from these cameras, with the help of external measurements, can be used to automatically identify cloud over a limited sky area. In this study, cloud detection ability is extended to all parts of the sky hemisphere and the need for any external data is eliminated.
