A Sentinel-2 Data Set for Uganda

SND-ID: 2021-50

Description Data and documentation

Creator/Principal investigator(s)

Jonas Ardö - Lund University, Physical Geograpy and Ecosystem Science orcid

Description

Optical top of the atmosphere reflectance data from the Earth resource satellite Sentinel-2 for Uganda (2018-2020) was downloaded and processed in a systematic way to bottom of the atmosphere reflectance with the open software FORCE (Framework for Operational Radiometric Correction for Environmental monitoring, see https://force-eo.readthedocs.io/en/latest/). For each year (2018-2020), the number of clear sky observations were calculated and a best available pixel mosaic were created. For each quarter (12 in total), for two vegetation indices (EVI = Enhanced Vegetation Index and NDVI = Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) a number of relevant measures were calculated (minimum, maximum, mean, standard deviation, 5%, 50% (median) and 95% quantiles). The data have 10-meter spatial resolution and are stored in GeoTIFF format.
Data are suitable for studies of vegetation and vegetation changes. More information and details in article published in Data (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/data), 'submitted' 2021-02-15
