I need to calculate the TCT greenness for Landsat 8 OLI imagery and having a hard time finding a tool.

All the python scripts I have found do not work and I am not experienced with Python at all.

Can anyone please point me to a step by step tutorial or just personal experience with this?

  • Can you convert your Landsat 8 data to at-satellite reflectance? This is a required first step. If you don't, then that'll tell us where to start. – Mikkel Lydholm Rasmussen Nov 6 '15 at 8:23

I'd suggest you and alternative: the r package RStoolbox.

The package provide the Tasseled Cap Transformation for Landsat 4 TM, Landsat 5 TM, Landsat 7ETM+, Landsat 8 OLI and MODIS.

Source code may be accessed from github repository.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but you should be able to do that in ArcGIS. Here is the link that explains it. http://geospatialworld.net/Paper/Application/ArticleView.aspx?aid=460

You can use ENVI or ERDAS to do the NDVI as well.
