How to calculate the NDVI Index from a Sentinel 2 Image


The normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) is a simple graphical indicator that can be used to analyze remote sensing measurements and assess the intensity of vegetation. NDVI is an old vegetation index and it is not related to a specific instrumente, therefore one can make comparisons in between different instruments/satellites from a wider period of time. 

This tutorial show the prodecure to calculate the NDVI from Sentinel 2 bands on QGIS.

This post is a part of a group of videos called "Working with Sentinel 2 Imagery on QGIS" that shows the complete procedure to download, represent and process Sentinel 2 images in QGIS, more information in this link:
