EVI is a development on Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). Sentinel-Hub EVI description: In areas of dense canopy cover, where leaf area index (LAI) is high, the blue wavelengths can be used to improve the accuracy of NDVI, as it corrects for soil background signals and atmospheric influences. The range of values for EVI is -1 to 1, with healthy vegetation generally around 0.20 to 0.80. EVI is calculated: EVI = 2.5 * ((NIR – RED) / ((NIR + (6 * RED) – (7.5 * BLUE)) + 1)) Sentinel 2 EVI = 2.5 * ((B8 – B4) / ((B8 + (6 * B4) – (7.5 * B2)) + 1)) These data have been created by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) as part of a Defra Natural Capital and Ecosystem Assessment (NCEA) project to produce a regional, and ultimately national, system for detecting a change in habitat conditions at a land parcel level. The first stage of the project is focused on Yorkshire, UK, and therefore the dataset includes granules and scenes covering Yorkshire and surrounding areas only. The dataset contains Enhanced Vegetation Index data derived from Defra and JNCC Sentinel-2 Analysis Ready Data. EVI files are generated for the following Sentinel-2 granules: • T30UWE • T30UXF • T30UWF • T30UXE • T31UCV • T30UYE • T31UCA As the project continues, JNCC will expand the geographical coverage of this dataset and will provide continuous updates as ARD becomes available.
