This FAPAR image focuses on central Myanmar (left half of image), northwestern Thailand (center bottom), Laos (lower right) and southwestern China (top right). FAPAR, meaning Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation, corresponds to the vegetation index of the area.

The mountainous areas in Myanmar appear red, indicating high synthetic activity. Much of the central part of the image is green to red, indicating good to high activity. The parts of China and Laos in the upper and lower right corners, respectively, appear yellow as they have lower levels of photosynthetic activity.
