The main objective of designing this tool is to facilitate near real-time assessment and monitoring of rangeland resources by aggregating key indicators to rangeland productivity with ancillary data and allow for integration of user-selected indicators to produce maps at different administrative (Counties) and conservancy boundaries.

The tool incorporates 10-day NDVI products from the RCMRD MODIS Receiver and disseminates monthly and seasonal vegetation anomalies and indices. Ongoing efforts are still continuing to improve the tool’s backend and front-end, and release stable version.
