Description

The MCD12Q2 V5 Land Cover Dynamics product (informally called the MODIS Global Vegetation Phenology product) provides estimates of the timing of vegetation phenology at global scales. Additionally, it provides information related to the range and summation of the enhanced vegetation index (EVI) computed from MODIS surface reflectance data at each pixel. It identifies the vegetation growth, maturity, senescence, and dormancy that mark seasonal cycles. MCD12Q2 is produced once a year with 24 months of input data (i.e. the 12 months of interest data bracketed by six month's data on either side).
