Abstract: The dataset of regional vegetation changes from 1981-2006 in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau was developed based on the NOAA AVHRR NDVI from 1981-2006. Seven vegetation change clusters and four vegetation change sub-regions are included in the dataset. The seven vegetation change clusters include the significantly decreased cluster, the decreased cluster, the slightly decreased cluster, the no change cluster, the slightly increased cluster, the increased cluster and the significantly increased cluster. The four vegetation change sub-regions include the western vegetation change increasing sub-region; the western vegetation stable sub-region; the middle vegetation change increasing sub-region; and the eastern vegetation degreasing sub-region.

Key words: vegetation change, Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, NOAA AVHRR NDVI, regression analysis, spatial cluster
