Google Earth Engine 101: Introduction to Earth Engine for beginners at Branner Earth Sciences Library
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
Please note that this workshop is for Stanford University affiliates, only.
The first part of the class will be an introduction to Remote Sensing, in general. The second half will focus on introducing the Google Earth Engine Platform, and accessing imagery, creating composites, and running analyses over stacks of images, computing statistics on imagery, creating charts and exporting the results of your analyses.
