    Is the "statistical NDVI" something special? You can easily calculate the NDVI like this: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/163545/… – Iris Sep 29 '15 at 9:24
  • Wikipedia and basic raster band math should give you all you need. – Curlew Sep 29 '15 at 10:00
  • Your questions are all very similar and show a lack of interest in self study. You should google more and get a bit more familiar with the R raster package to understand how to work with stacks. – Generic Wevers Sep 29 '15 at 10:03

NDVI is always calculated like this:


For Landsat 8 this means

NDVI = (Band5 - Band4)/(Band5 + Band4)
