Monthly NDVI Anomaly by Municipality

This map shows the NDVI anomaly for each month by Municipality, taking as reference the monthly average for each Municipality for the period between the year 2000 and the present.

Values of cero mean that the month being visualized has the same NDVI value as the monthly mean of the complete time series. Negative or positive values show how many units that month is above or below the monthly mean of the time series.

The NDVI anomaly for each month indicates the deviation of that months compare with the mean of all the same months (e.g. all Januaries) in the time series. It is important to note that the magnitude of the anomalies is only relevant for each Municipality by itself and cannot be compared among them. For comparison among Municipalities please refer to the Monthly NDVI standardized anomaly map.

Dataset Documentation

Monthly NDVI Anomaly by Municipality

MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) was launched by NASA aboard the Earth Observing System (EOS) satellite Terra on December 18, 1999. A second MODIS instrument was launched May 4, 2002 on the EOS-Aqua platform. With both instruments in operation, MODIS provides a morning and afternoon view with global, near-daily repeat coverage.
