The underlying dataset for this Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) product is MODIS BRDF-corrected imagery (MCD43B4), which was gap-filled using the approach outlined in Weiss et al. (2014) to eliminate missing data caused by factors such as cloud cover. Gap-free outputs were then aggregated temporally and spatially to produce the monthly ≈5km product.

This dataset was produced by Harry Gibson and Daniel Weiss of the Malaria Atlas Project (Big Data Institute, University of Oxford, United Kingdom, https://malariaatlas.org/).

Name Units Min Max Description
Mean 0* 1*

The mean value of the Enhanced Vegetation Index for each aggregated pixel.

FilledProportion % 0* 100*

A quality control band that indicates the percentage of each resulting pixel that was comprised of raw data (as opposed to gap-filled estimates).

* estimated min or max value
