Land Monitoring Products
Land Monitoring provides data processing and analytical approaches that can be used together with other data to generate products and information that you need. Land Monitoring products are made available in our web-based dashboard, can be streamed to your own GIS system, or simply accessed via secure FTP. Products include:

  • Surface reflectance and composite Images – best available pixel algorithms provide cloud-free base images for other derived products
  • Vegetation index (NDVI, EVI)
  • Leaf area index (LAI) – derived from optical satellite data or LiDAR data (calibrated using field measurements)
  • Burn Severity (Normalized Burn Ratio)
  • Normalized snow difference index (NDSI)
  • Surface water extent index
  • Land cover change (disturbance)
