What is EVI?

Our Calibrated Vine Vigour data products are created using the Enhanced Vegetation Index, a ratio of how much sunlight is reflected off the plants in different colour bands, including infra-red.

Did you know?

NDVI has been the standard multi-spectral image used to measure vigor in the wine industry, but unfortunately, NDVI has a number of inherent shortcomings. One of the most important shortcomings is that the data is highly dependent on the time of day at which the image is taken. This is because of the change in solar angle. This means that using NDVI has the potential provide inaccurate information and can show different data at different times of the day. NDVI results also vary based on other factors, like shadowing or soil variations. In order to correct for these inaccuracies, our scientists have adopted a new, improved version of NDVI, called the Enhanced Vegetation Index. Using additional wavelengths of light, we are able to correct the errors associated with NDVI.

Take a look at our examples below

As you can see in the images above, NDVI produces vastly different results when taken at different times on the same day. Clearly the vigor of the vines has not changed over a 3-hour period, as would be implied from the images above.

Using additional spectral information and calculations, EVI corrects for the difference in atmospheric conditions and solar incidence angle, providing you with more accurate, actionable data.
