VIP Collection Now Available

The MEaSUREs 2006 Vegetation Index and Phenology (VIP) collection is now being distributed by NASA's Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC). This data collection provides users with global vegetation information from 1981 to 2014.

Sensing Global Vegetation

This image shows vegetation using the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) layer of the VIP 7-day product. Vegetation “greenness” ranges from sparser vegetation in light green to healthier vegetation in dark green. Brown areas are those with little to no vegetation (such as deserts).


The Earth Observing System Data and Information System is a key core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program. It provides end-to-end capabilities for managing NASA’s Earth science data from various sources—satellites, aircraft, field measurements, and various other programs.
