## Indices

Nr. | Name | General Formula | Comment |
---|---|---|---|

1 | Normalized Difference NIR/Red | $\frac{{\mathrm{NIR}}-{\mathrm{RED}}}{{\mathrm{NIR}}+{\mathrm{RED}}}$ | |

2 | Perpendicular Vegetation Index | $\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{{{a}}^{2}+1}}\right)\left({\mathrm{NIR}}-{\mathrm{ar}}-{b}\right)$ | |

3 | Simple Ratio 800/670 | $\frac{{\mathrm{800nm}}}{{\mathrm{670nm}}}$ | |

4 | Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index | $\frac{{\mathrm{800nm}}-{\mathrm{670nm}}}{{\mathrm{800nm}}+{\mathrm{670nm}}+{L}}\left(1+{L}\right)$ |
