NDVI  (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) information is very useful in various field of studies like agriculture, crop yield, types of vegetation, plant phenology, climate change, seasonal change and beyond. This workshop outlines a method to extract NDVI from Landsat remotely sensed images over different periods of year in R. In addition, participants will explore widely used R-functions in visualizing both temporal and spatial dynamics of NDVI.
