Event description

Description

Google Earth Engine 101A: Introduction to Earth Engine for beginners, part A

Meet Earth Engine

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.

Presenters: Nicholas Clinton & Stace Maples

Description: The Earth Engine API (application programming interface) provides the ability to create your own algorithms to process raster and vector imagery. This session is geared toward people who would like to analyze satellite and vector data. The session will be hands-on, using the Earth Engine Javascript code editor. The first part of the class will focus on accessing imagery, creating composites, and running analyses over stacks of images. The second half will focus on computing statistics on imagery, creating charts and exporting the results of your analyses.

Prerequisites:

  • Familiarity with at least one software language, or at least not be afraid of learning as we go.
  • Your own laptop!
  • An up-to-date copy of Google Chrome Browser
  • A Google Earth Engine account, which can be obtained here: https://signup.earthengine.google.com/#!/ (please sign up well before the workshop!).
