The Normalized Differential Vegetation Index is a very popular vegetation index that gives us useful information about the presence or absence of live green vegetation.
NDVI is calculated using a band with red spectral reflectance values, and another one with near-infrared reflectance values. In the sample dataset, you will find two image files named
nir.tif that can be used to compute NDVI. A project named
ndvi.qgs is available, which contains these two layers and a landsat image corresponding to this same area. Open this project.
