As part of Geohackweek next Monday, November 14, you are invited to a free public lecture by Google developers introducing the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform. The event will run from 3:30 to 4:25 p.m. Anderson 223!
GEE is a tool for geospatial analysis that includes a massive data catalog of satellite imagery and geospatial data. The data catalog is hosted on Google’s cloud, allowing for rapid, on-the-fly calculations over large spatial and temporal scales. Whether you want to build a habitat map for your study area, map malaria risks throughout a country, or monitor global deforestation patterns, Google Earth Engine is an exciting new technology that brings petabytes of free, public data to users’ fingertips from the cloud.
