Proba-V VEGETATION

Proba-V 1Km synthesis products S1 TOA, S1 TOC and S10 TOC (PROBA-V.VEGETATION.1KM_SYNTHESIS)


The Proba-V VEGETATION synthesis products (S1 = daily, 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, thus continuing the existing long time series of the SPOT-VEGETATION products. The synthesis products also allow pixel to pixel comparison for long time series (geo-location repeatability).

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. The kilometric spatial resolution ensures the data continuity with SPOT-VEGETATION instruments.


Three kinds of 1Km synthesis products are available:

- S1 TOA: Proba-V Level 3 Top Of Atmosphere (no atmospheric corrections applied) daily synthesis product at 1KM spatial resolution.
Top Of Atmosphere reflectance in the four spectral bands corresponding to the selected measurement, without atmospheric correction. Includes: Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Geometric viewing conditions, Reference to date and time of selected measurement, Information on the composite status map (containing identification of snow, ice, shadow, clouds, land/sea for every pixel)

- S1 TOC: Proba-V Level 3 Top Of Canopy (atmospheric corrections applied) daily synthesis product at 1KM spatial resolution.
Top Of Canopy (ground surface) reflectance in the four spectral bands corresponding to the selected measurement, the atmospheric correction being performed using the SMAC procedure. Includes: Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Geometric viewing conditions, Reference to date and time of selected measurement, Information on the composite status map (containing identification of snow, ice, shadow, clouds, land/sea for every pixel)

- S10 TOC: Proba-V Level 3 Top Of Canopy (atmospheric corrections applied) ten-daily synthesis product at 1KM spatial resolution.
Top Of Canopy (ground surface) reflectance in the four spectral bands corresponding to the selected measurement, the atmospheric correction being performed using the SMAC procedure. Includes: Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Geometric viewing conditions, Reference to date and time of selected measurement, Information on the composite status map (containing identification of snow, ice, shadow, clouds, land/sea for every pixel)
