Aqua near-infrared (NIR) MODIS imagery of Wisconsin from WisconsinView. This map layer represents red, green, blue (RGB) with spectral bands 2 (841-876nm), 1 (620-670nm), 4 (545-565nm). These bands correspond to a combination of visible light and infrared light (not visible) representing a shift in the colors we would expect to see towards the infrared. Surface features that contain cloraphyll-a, such as vegetation, typically reflect strongly near-infrared light and therefore show up as colored red in this imagery.
