Monthly NDVI Anomaly by pixel

This map shows the NDVI anomaly for each month by pixel, taking as reference the monthly average for each pixel 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.

Monthly NDVI Anomaly by pixel

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.
