Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Remote sensing spectral indices have been widely used because of its simple calculation and good indication, which can effectively measure and monitor the corresponding features of the earth surface. Based on Landsat land surface reflectance products, eight remote sensing spectral index products have been developed: NDVI, EVI, SAVI, MSAVI, NDWI, NDMI, MNDWI, and NBR, covering the land areas of China from the 1980s to the year of 2019. The results of these spectral index products are saved in GeoTIFF format with corresponding quality assessment files (QA), and XML metadata files.
