The Proba-V VEGETATION Raw products (L1C/P) and synthesis products (S1 = daily, S5 = 5 days, S10 = decade) ensure coverage of all significant landmasses worldwide with, in the case of a 10-day synthesis product, a minimum effect of cloud cover, resulting from selection of cloud-free acquisitions during the 10-day period. It ensures a daily coverage between Lat. 35°N and 75°N, and between 35°S and 56°S, and a full coverage every two days at equator.
The VEGETATION instrument is pre-programmed with an indefinite repeated sequence of acquisitions. This nominal acquisition scenario allows a continuous series of identical products to be generated, aiming to map land cover and vegetation growth across the entire planet every two days.
The Proba-V VEGETATION synthesis products are divided into so called granules, each measuring 10 degrees x 10 degrees, each granule being delivered as a single file.
Available Proba-V products are:
