Abstract: Vegetation index (VI) is one of the most important parameters for vegetation remote sensing research and application. However, there are few standardized regional or global high-resolution VI products available now. Taking advantage of the high spatial and temporal resolution of Gaofen1 WFV sensor, MuSyQ NDVI product of 16m/10days resolution in China from 2018 to 2020 was generated using the vegetation index synthesis algorithm. This product can be used to monitor the canopy structural and phenological characteristics of vegetation in China, analyze the seasonal and interannual changes of biochemical and physicochemical parameters. It can provide reliable data for the analysis of vegetation change, the application of agriculture and forestry, and ecological environment monitoring in China.
