Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) images produced from NASA's Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) data are used to monitor vegetation and crop condition. There are several global/regional scale systems in place that report on drought, food shortages and forecasting crop yields including the USGS Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) and Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Global Agricultural Monitoring (GEOGLAM) crop monitor.
