Google Earth Engine 101: An Introduction for Absolute Beginners
Google Earth Engine 101: Introduction to Earth Engine for beginners
Meet Earth Engine
Google Earth Engine is a geospatial processing service. With Earth Engine, you can perform geospatial processing at scale, powered by Google Cloud Platform. The purpose of Earth Engine is to:
- Provide an interactive platform for geospatial algorithm development at scale
- Enable high-impact, data-driven science
- Make substantive progress on global challenges that involve large geospatial datasets
Google Earth Engine combines a multi-petabyte catalog of satellite imagery and geospatial datasets with planetary-scale analysis capabilities and makes it available for scientists, researchers, and developers to detect changes, map trends, and quantify differences on the Earth's surface.
Presenter: Stace Maples - Stanford Geospatial Center
The first part of the class will be an overview of the Google Earth Engine Platform, and Remote Sensing, in general. The second half will focus on accessing imagery, creating composites, and running analyses over stacks of images, computing statistics on imagery, creating charts and exporting the results of your analyses.
