I am trying to figure out if the Enhanced Vegetation Index (2-band) is normalized or not? My first guess is that it is, but due to a multiplication factor of 2.4, I'm not sure if it is or not. The following paper describes the EVI2: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0034425708001971

The formula is as follows: 2.5((NIR - R)/(NIR + 2.4R + 1))

Is this an example of band normalization, such as how the NDVI index normalizes its data between -1 and 1?

  • Does this answer your question? EVI and NDVI range value – Geraldine Feb 14 at 17:50
  • @Geraldine it touches on it, but doesn't outright answer my question. The NDVI is considered a "normalized" index; I'm trying to find out if it considered a "normalized" index or not. – ihb Feb 14 at 17:56
