MGVI vegetation product over Europe via ftp

Type(s) 2. Thematic Services

Abstract The "MGVI vegetation product over Europe via ftp" is a Subscription Service which allows users to receive the MGVI (MERIS Global Vegetation Index) computed over Europe. The MERIS Global Vegetation Index (MGVI) is a good measure of the amount and vigour of vegetation at the surface, and it is a MERIS Level 2 product, which is free of charge.

The MGVI is computed by collecting MERIS products over Europe every 10 days aligned on the first day of each month -like the standard used for the AVHRR 10 days composite- (e.g. for a month of 31 days the last MERIS collection of the month is based on 11 days while for February the last collection is based on 8 or 9 days).

The user has to define a "Subscription Period" and the service will provide an ftp account where data will be available. As soon as a new product is available, the user will receive a mail notification and will be able to get the MGVI product. The Order result page will show the last MGVI computed loaded on the WebMapViewer through the ESRIN WMS.

The MGVI level-3 aggregation processor routinely operated on ESA Grid Processing on Demand (G-POD) and is developed and maintained by the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC).
