Census of Environment: Urban greenness, 2022

Document Summary: 
The publication presents two measures of urban greenness for Canadian populations centers for 2000 – 2022. These measures provide information on the condition of urban ecosystems. Both measures were computed from the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), derived from satellite imagery from the moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer. The average greenness is the percentage of the land area that was classed as green and corresponds to areas with NDVI of 0.5 or more. The average NDVI is the average of all pixel NDVI values for the area, excluding water
