NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of VIIRS Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Version 1

Metadata Updated: September 19, 2023

This dataset contains gridded daily Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) derived from the NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Surface Reflectance. The data record spans from 2014 to 10 days before the present using data from NOAA polar orbiting satellites. The data are projected on a 0.05 degree x 0.05 degree global grid. This dataset is one of the Land Surface CDR products produced by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and the University of Maryland (UMD). The dataset is in the netCDF-4 file format following ACDD and CF Conventions. The dataset is accompanied by algorithm documentation, data flow diagram and source code for the NOAA CDR Program.
