Abstract

Vegetation index data were composited in space and time to monitor vegetation changes in a spatial continuous fashion. Sixteen days of SeaWiFS (Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor) data were composited to prototype and test the MODIS (MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) algorithm for 'standardized' MODIS vegetation indices. It is shown that the MODIS composite algorithm is most reliable if accurate cloud information is available so that cloud affected pixel is rejected in the BRDF part of the MODIS algorithm.
