Imagery Analysis

The Raster Calculator in QGIS provides functionality for performing mathematical operations with the bands from multispectral satellite imagery. In the case where bands are stacked into one single multiband raster image, the individual bands appear in the raster calculator. The individual bands can be used in a multitude of combinations and the result saved as a new raster.

Experience Level:

Advanced

Skills Covered:

  • Calculate normalized burn ratio
  • Calculate normalized difference moisture index
  • Calculate normalized difference vegetation index

Lessons1 hr

  • Normalized Burn Ratio
  • Normalized Difference Moisture Index
  • Vegetation Indices
  • Course Survey
