In this paper present a various application of Thermography in various fields like industrial, scientific, and medical applications. With the development of infrared camera infrared Thermography is a major area of research. It is also used for conditioning, monitoring, maintenance and various applications in research and development. Infrared thermal-imaging cameras can be used to detect loss of heat in insulated systems, detect overheating of electrical apparatus, Military and civilian purposes. Thermal imaging is non-contact two-dimensional and three-dimensional tool but it is also use for heat transfer, analysis of thermal properties, testing, diagnosis of diseases etc. Application of infrared radiation is measure the temperature of objects from safe distance. Thermography makes it possible to see everything in environment with or without visible light. The radiation emitted by a body increases with temperature; therefore Thermography allows one to see variations in temperature.
