Cloud Based Earth Observation
Google Earth Engine (GEE) is a cloud-based geospatial processing platform allowing for planetary-scale analysis. Next to a large amount of raw processing power provided by Google’s computational infrastructure, Earth Engine offers a rich data catalog which stores several petabytes of publically available and analysis ready geospatial data sets. Students will be introduced to the platform and gain fundamental knowledge about the usage of Google Earth Engines processing power and data offer. Topics covered are vector and raster data manipulation, working with ImageCollections, time-series analysis, classification, iteration, visualization and animation of spatial data.
