NDVI – Normalised Difference Vegetation Index

One of the most useful outputs available in the Geospatial Forestry Platform are the NDVI images that are derived from satellite imagery. But what is NDVI? This abbreviation stands for "Normalised Difference Vegetation Index", and it is a measure of photosynthetic activity in vegetation. Simply put, it is a measure of how well a plant is growing, and we are able to monitor it through high quality satellite imagery.
