Project Duration: May 2014 – October 2014


To improve the accessibility of MODIS Vegetation Indices time series. Application of statistical analysis will enable easier interpretation of time-series data.

This will provide the foundation for a mobile web service capable of extracting, analyzing and summarizing relevant time series from the geodatabase according to positions data provided by the user. The user will then receive a detailed factsheet on the desired MODIS Vegetation Indices time series.

Key Activities:

Integration of the mobile web processing services into the existing web GIS infrastructure of WALRIS;
Verification and application of the BITS-tool in the field. Collecting 20 detailed pixel stories according to the defined framework.
