Minimize VG1 Product - Surface reflectance

SYN VG1 corresponds to the daily synthesis, i.e. the single "best" value for top of canopy reflectance at the four selected channels, based on those giving the maximum value of a vegetation index.

Note:  the "max NDVI" composite method could be replaced by a different one, following the recommendations raised in coming evolutions.
