MODIS NDVI Data, Smoothed and Gap-filled, for the Conterminous US: 2000-2015

Data Set Overview

ProjectVegetation Collection
Time Period2000-01-01 to 2015-12-31


This data set provides Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data, smoothed and gap-filled, for the conterminous US for the period 2000-01-01 through 2015-12-31. The data were generated using the NASA Stennis Time Series Product Tool (TSPT) to generate NDVI data streams from the Terra satellite (MODIS MOD13Q1 product) and Aqua satellite (MODIS MYD13Q1 product) instruments. TSPT produces NDVI data that are less affected by clouds and bad pixels.
