Exercise 4.1: Calcuating indicies
Spectral Indices are central to many aspects of remote sensing. Whether you are studying vegetation or tracking fires - you will need to compute a pixel-wise ratio of 2 or more bands. The most commonly used formula for calculating an index is the
Normalized Difference between 2 bands. Earth Engine provides a helper function
to help calculate normalized indices, such as Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). For more complex formulae, you can also use the
function to describe the calculation.
