Spot vegetation NDVI dataset for Sanjiangyuan (1998-2013)

Spot vegetation NDVI dataset for Sanjiangyuan (1998-2013)

The data set is extracted from the NDVI data of long time series acquired by VEGETATION sensor on SPOT satellite. The time range of the data set is from May 1998 to 2013. In order to remove the noise in NDVI data, the maximum synthesis is carried out. A NDVI image is synthesized every 10 days. The data set is cut out from the global data set, so as to carry out the research and analysis of the source areas of the three rivers separately.

The data format of this data set is geotiff, spatial resolution is 1 km, temporal resolution is 10 days, time range: May 1998 to December 2013.

File naming and required software

In .geotiff format, can be read and edited in GIS or RS software.
