A False Color Composite Image (FFCI) is an image produced by displaying multiple spectral bands as colors different from the spectral range they were taken in.  The term "false-color" is typically used to describe images whose colors represent measured intensities outside the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.

 Typical false-color images include infrared data, which are often displayed as visible red. Thus green vegetation, which is highly reflective in the infrared, typically appears red on a false-color image. It is useful for extraction information difficult to discern in the original imagery, variations in vegetation species or health.
