Vegetation Index of Thailand and Neighboring Countries16.0N 101.3E
This FAPAR image focuses on Thailand, showing the country’s vegetation index. Parts of Myanmar (left), Laos (upper right quadrant) and Cambodia (lower right quadrant) are also visible. The index in central Thailand is quite low, as is evidenced by the light yellow false-coloring. The index is highest (rusty red) in the mountains in the upper left quadrant and along the Malay Peninsula in the lower left quadrant. The rest of the image shows a generally good index of photosynthetic activity (green).
