contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data (2016–18), processed by GeoVille

Description

Data from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission has been used to generate a new high-resolution map of vegetation across Earth’s entire landmass. The new map depicts global vegetation dynamics and gives insight into land productivity.

The time of vegetation peak i.e. the month at which greenness maximum occurs is shown in red (spring) and green (summer) to blue tones (autumn and winter.) The variability of vegetation greenness is represented by light tones in low amplitude areas such as managed grasslands, while high amplitudes are represented by saturated colour tones. Areas with low biomass such as urban areas and open bodies of water are shown in black, while areas with higher biomass appear in grey and white tones.
