MOD 13 - Gridded Vegetation Indices (NDVI & EVI)

Description:
MODIS core mission, standard VI products include the normalize difference vegetation index (NDVI) and the enhanced vegetation index (EVI) to effectively characterize bio-physical/ biochemical states and processes from vegetated surfaces. There exists a com-plete, global time series record of 6 VI products from each of the Terra and Aqua MODIS sensors, at varying spatial (250m, 1km, 0.05 degree) and temporal (16-day, monthly) resolutions to meet the needs of the research and application communities. The VI prod-ucts are validated with accuracies depicted by a pixel reliability flag and with globally av-eraged uncertainties of 0.015 units.
