Section 1 Overview
Originator Kris Johnson, Natural Resources Research Institute, GIS Lab
Title Normalized Difference Vegetation Index
Abstract Developed using Google Earth Engine Sentinel-2 satellite imagery. For more information on the Sentinel-2 imagery: https://explorer.earthengine.google.com/#detail/COPERNICUS%2FS2

Script used to derive data:
https://code.earthengine.google.com/774e4ed152e4651971dc6e9456998d17

Methods: This is a composite image where each pixel is selected based on the NDVI function (NIR-Red/NIR+Red). This composite thus represents the highest NDVI for every pixel for that location captured by Sentinel-2.
Purpose Vegetation assessment.
