Description
The VEGETATION system allows a daily monitoring of terrestrial vegetation cover through remote sensing at a global level. The instrument and associated ground services for processing and distribution are operational since 1998. The VEGETATON 1 instrument onboard of the SPOT 4 satellite was launched in March 1998, VEGETATION 2 was launched in May 2002 onboard of SPOT 5.

Parameters
Reflectance in 4 broad spectral bands Methodology
Reflectance in 4 broad spectral bands: VEGETATION imaging system
The VEGETATION instrument is an imaging system in 4 spectral bands : blue (0.43-0.47 microns), red (0.61-0.68 microns), near infrared (0.78-0.89 microns), and SW infrared (1.58-1.75 microns). The red and near infrared are particularly well adapted to describe the vegetation photosynthesis activity, while the SW infrared is a good detector for the ground and vegetation humidity. The blue, is designed in this case to make atmospheric corrections. VEGETATION uses telecentric optics giving a quasi
