In our new publication”Optimising Phenological Metrics Extraction for Different Crop Types in Germany Using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS)” we present a calibration procedure to make phenometrics more comparable to ground-based phenological stages. Therefore we optimised the settings of the Best Index Slope Extraction (BISE) and smoothing algorithms together with thresholds applied to the resulting smoothed NDVI curves.
