|View GreenReport® Maps for: 1997,
In the spring of 1996 with funding from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), KARS began producing a bi-weekly map series called the GreenReport® that measures vegetation conditions across the United States. The GreenReport® is produced using Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI ) images compiled at EROS Data Center from Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) imagery. Using these images, five bi-weekly maps are created to illustrate current vegetation greenness and reletave condition:
The current GreenReport map is also available as a GreenReport web map. This mapping application is updated each week with the latest data and can be found at http://kars.ku.edu/agol-maps/greenreport/.
