NDVI

Calculates NDVI on imagery with RGB and NIR bands.

Description

Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is an indicator for vegetation health and biomass. The standard formula for NDVI is computed by NDVI = {NIR - Red} / {NIR + Red}. The resolution of the output data is identical to the input.

Supported Workflows

This block requires input images with Red and NIR bands. It is recommended to use 16 bit imagery to achieve results that can be used for analytics.

The following workflows are supported:

  • Pléiades / SPOT Reflectance (Download) -> Pan-sharpening -> NDVI
  • HxGN Content Program, 15 / 30 cm (Streaming / Download) -> NDVI

Pléiades / SPOT Display (Download) blocks are currently not supported.
