Welcome to the technical web pages of the VEGETATION programme:The VEGETATION Programme is conceived to allow daily monitoring of terrestrial vegetation cover through remote sensing, at regional to global scales. The instrument and associated ground services for data archival, processing and distribution are operational since April 1998. The first VEGETATION instrument is part of the SPOT 4 satellite and a second payload, VEGETATION 2, is now operationally operated onboard SPOT 5.
