Process_Description:
Supervised Maximum Liklihood Classification run on MODIS MOD43B4 BRDF adjusted reflectance data. The 16-day data was composited into 32-composites with maximum NDVI method. Then an MLC was run using 12 months NDVI generated from the 32-day composites and 7 band reflectance from the dry season month of September.
