High Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity

A new Sentinel-2 based phenology product

BlueGreen Labs is proud to have been part of the recent release of the High Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity (HR-VPP) satellite remote sensing product. In this project we provided phenocam near-surface remote sensing data products and expertise in support of product development and validation. This project for the European Environmental Agency (EEA) was covered by multiple partners, with the final data product management by the VITO remote sensing unit.

The final HR-VPP product provides phenology and vegetation indices at a 10m resolution across Europe (resolving small scale EU agricultural fields - see image below). The product will support applications in agriculture and biodiversity monitoring alike. The various data products are now freely available on the WEkEO platform.

In the coming months Jupyter notebooks will be released to explore this large dataset efficiently. Keep an eye on the VITO pages and our blog for worked examples.
