  • Sentinel-Hub NDVI description: NDVI is a simple, but effective index for quantifying green vegetation. It normalizes green leaf scattering in Near Infra-red wavelengths with chlorophyll absorption in red wavelengths. The value range of the NDVI is -1 to 1. Negative values of NDVI (values approaching -1) correspond to water. Values close to zero (-0.1 to 0.1) generally correspond to barren areas of rock, sand, or snow. Low, positive values represent shrub and grassland (approximately 0.2 to 0.4), while high values indicate temperate and tropical rainforests (values approaching 1). It is a good proxy for live green vegetation. NDVI = (NIR – Red) / (NIR + RED) Sentinel-2 NDVI = (B8 - B4) / (B8 + B4) These data have been created by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) as part of a Defra Natural Capital and Ecosystem Assessment (NCEA) project to produce a regional, and ultimately national, system for detecting a change in habitat conditions at a land parcel level. The first stage of the project is focused on Yorkshire, UK, and therefore the dataset includes granules and scenes covering Yorkshire and surrounding areas only. The dataset contains Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data derived from Defra and JNCC Sentinel-2 Analysis Ready Data. NDVI files are generated for the following Sentinel-2 granules: • T30UWE • T30UXF • T30UWF • T30UXE • T31UCV • T30UYE • T31UCA As the project continues, JNCC will expand the geographical coverage of this dataset and will provide continuous updates as ARD becomes available.
