bandIndexType Objectreadonly

Method name constants used by the band index raster functions.
 Properties

userDefined Number
User defined method. When using the user defined method to define your band arithmetic algorithm, you can enter a singleline algebraic formula to create a singleband output. The supported operators are ,+,/,*, and unary . To identify the bands, add B or b to the beginning of the band number.
NDVI NumberThe Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) method is a standardized index allowing you to generate an image displaying greenness (relative biomass). This index takes advantage of the contrast of the characteristics of two bands from a multispectral raster dataset—the chlorophyll pigment absorptions in the red band and the high reflectivity of plant materials in the NIR band.
NDVIRe NumberThe RedEdge NDVI (NDVIre) method is a vegetation index for estimating vegetation health using the rededge band. It is especially useful for estimating crop health in the mid to late stages of growth, when the chlorophyll concentration is relatively higher. Also, NDVIre can be used to map the withinfield variability of nitrogen foliage to understand the fertilizer requirements of crops.
BAI NumberThe Burn Area Index (BAI) uses the reflectance values in the red and NIR portion of the spectrum to identify the areas of the terrain affected by fire. See BAI raster function.
NBR NumberThe Normalized Burn Ratio Index (NBRI) uses the NIR and SWIR bands to emphasize burned areas, while mitigating illumination and atmospheric effects. Your images should be corrected to reflectance values before using this index. See NRB raster function.
NDBI NumberThe Normalized Difference Builtup Index (NDBI) uses the NIR and SWIR bands to emphasize manufactured builtup areas. It is ratio based to mitigate the effects of terrain illumination differences as well as atmospheric effects. NDBI raster function.
NDMI NumberThe Normalized Difference Moisture Index (NDMI) is sensitive to the moisture levels in vegetation. It is used to monitor droughts and fuel levels in fireprone areas. It uses NIR and SWIR bands to create a ratio designed to mitigate illumination and atmospheric effects. NDMI raster function.
NDSI NumberThe Normalized Difference Snow Index (NDSI) is designed to use MODIS (band 4 and band 6) and Landsat TM (band 2 and band 5) for identification of snow cover while ignoring cloud cover. Since it is ratio based, it also mitigates atmospheric effects. NDSI raster function.
GEMI NumberThe Global Environmental Monitoring Index (GEMI) method is a nonlinear vegetation index for global environmental monitoring from satellite imagery. It's similar to NDVI, but it's less sensitive to atmospheric effects. It is affected by bare soil; therefore, it's not recommended for use in areas of sparse or moderately dense vegetation.
GVITM NumberThe Green Vegetation Index (GVI) method was originally designed from Landsat MSS imagery and has been modified for Landsat TM imagery. It's also known as the Landsat TM Tasseled Cap green vegetation index. It can be used with imagery whose bands share the same spectral characteristics.
PVI StringThe Perpendicular Vegetation Index (PVI) method is similar to a difference vegetation index; however, it is sensitive to atmospheric variations. When using this method to compare images, it should only be used on images that have been atmospherically corrected.
Sultan NumberThe Sultan's process takes a sixband 8bit image and uses the Sultan's Formula method to produce a threeband 8bit image. The resulting image highlights rock formations called ophiolites on coastlines. This formula was designed based on the TM or ETM bands of a Landsat 5 or 7 scene.
VARI NumberThe Visible Atmospherically Resistant Index (VARI) method is a vegetation index for estimating vegetation fraction quantitatively with only the visible range of the spectrum.
GNDVI NumberThe Green Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (GNDVI) method is a vegetation index for estimating photo synthetic activity and is a commonly used vegetation index to determine water and nitrogen uptake into the plant canopy.
SAVI NumberThe SoilAdjusted Vegetation Index (SAVI) method is a vegetation index that attempts to minimize soil brightness influences using a soilbrightness correction factor. This is often used in arid regions where vegetative cover is low, and it outputs values between 1.0 and 1.0.
TSAVI NumberThe Transformed Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index (TSAVI) method is a vegetation index that minimizes soil brightness influences by assuming the soil line has an arbitrary slope and intercept.
MSAVI NumberThe Modified Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index (MSAVI) method minimizes the effect of bare soil on the SAVI.
SR NumberThe Simple Ratio (SR) method is a common vegetation index for estimating the amount of vegetation. It is the ratio of light scattered in the NIR and absorbed in red bands, which reduces the effects of atmosphere and topography.
SRRe NumberThe RedEdge Simple Ratio (SRre) method is a vegetation index for estimating the amount of healthy and stressed vegetation. It is the ratio of light scattered in the NIR and rededge bands, which reduces the effects of atmosphere and topography.
MTVI2 NumberThe Modified Triangular Vegetation Index (MTVI2) method is a vegetation index for detecting leaf chlorophyll content at the canopy scale while being relatively insensitive to leaf area index. It uses reflectance in the green, red, and NIR bands.
RTVICore NumberThe RedEdge Triangulated Vegetation Index (RTVICore) method is a vegetation index for estimating leaf area index and biomass. This index uses reflectance in the NIR, rededge, and green spectral bands.
CIRe NumberThe Chlorophyll Index  RedEdge (CIre) method is a vegetation index for estimating the chlorophyll content in leaves using the ratio of reflectivity in the NIR and rededge bands.
CIG NumberChlorophyll index  Green (CIG) method is a vegetation index for estimating the chlorophyll content in leaves using the ratio of reflectivity in the NIR and green bands.
EVI NumberThe Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) method is an optimized vegetation index that accounts for atmospheric influences and vegetation background signal. It's similar to NDVI but is less sensitive to background and atmospheric noise, and it does not become as saturated as NDVI when viewing areas with very dense green vegetation. EVI raster function.
ironOxide NumberThe Iron Oxide (ironOxide) ratio method is a geological index for identifying rock features that have experienced oxidation of ironbearing sulfides using the red and blue bands. It is useful in identifying iron oxide features below vegetation canopies and is used in mineral composite mapping. ironOxide raster function.
ferrousMinerals NumberThe Ferrous Minerals (ferrousMinerals) ratio method is a geological index for identifying rock features containing some quantity of ironbearing minerals using the SWIR and NIR bands. It is used in mineral composite mapping. ferrousMinerals raster function.
clayMinerals NumberThe Clay Minerals (clayMinerals) ratio method is a geological index for identifying mineral features containing clay and alunite using two shortwave infrared (SWIR) bands. It is used in mineral composite mapping. See clayMinerals raster function.
NDWI NumberThe Normalized Difference Water Index (NDWI) method is an index for delineating and monitoring content changes in surface water. It is computed with the NIR and green bands. See NDWI raster function.
WNDWI NumberThe Weighted Normalized Difference Water Index (WNDWI) method is a water index developed to reduce errors typically encountered in other water indices, including water turbidity, small water bodies, or shadow in remote sensing scenes.
MNDWI NumberThe Modified Normalized Difference Water Index (MNDWI) uses green and SWIR bands for the enhancement of open water features. It also diminishes builtup area features that are often correlated with open water in other indices.
