Green: Vegetation on Our Planet

Geography Teachers' Association of Victoria Inc. (GTAV)'s insight:

Although 75% of the planet is a relatively unchanging ocean of blue, the remaining 25% of Earth's surface is a dynamic green. Data from the NASA/NOAA Suomi NPP satellite is able to detect these subtle differences in greenness. The resources on this page highlight our ever-changing planet, using highly detailed vegetation index data from the satellite, developed by scientists at NOAA. The darkest green areas are the lushest in vegetation, while the pale colors are sparse in vegetation cover either due to snow, drought, rock, or urban areas. Satellite data from April 2012 to April 2013 was used to generate these animations and images.

New Landsat data just a few clicks away

New Landsat data just a few clicks away | GTAV Technology and cartography in Geography | Scoop.it
Geography Teachers' Association of Victoria Inc. (GTAV)'s insight:

Thousands of never-before-seen data products from the US Landsat satellites acquired over 30 years have been released for online access. In addition, the newest data over Europe from the latest satellite in the series, Landsat-8, are now accessible in near-real time through a new portal hosted by ESA.

About 150 000 new products from the Landsat-5 satellite are available for direct download, free of charge. The products from the satellite’s Thematic Mapper instrument were acquired by the Kiruna ground station in northern Sweden between 1983 and 2011.

ESA recently completed reprocessing the data at a higher quality than ever before. The products are now aligned with those from the Landsat-8 satellite, paving the way for ESA’s provision of data from the latest satellite in the series.
